The land use mapping effort consisted of digitizing land use polygons using 1948-1950's, 1976-1977, 1999-2001, and 2012 aerial imagery in a GIS environment. The goal of the delineation was to capture areas of similar land use as they appeared on the aerial imagery, while maintaining a consistent scale. Four tiers of nested attributes were developed for the mapping effort. The study area is defined by the GIS-modeled 100-year inundation boundary, plus a 500-meter buffer. In total, over 700 square miles of area were mapped for each suite of imagery.
Land Use GIS Data. These data consist of land use polygons digitized from 1948-1950's, 1976-1977, 1999-2001, and 2012 aerial orthophotographs.
