Description

This data set provides high-resolution (1-m) tree canopy cover for states in the Northeast USA. State-level canopy cover data are currently available for Pennsylvania (data for nominal year 2008), Delaware (2014), and Maryland (2013). The data were derived with a rules-based expert system which facilitated integration of leaf-on LiDAR and imagery data into a single classification workflow, exploiting the spectral, height, and spatial information contained in the datasets. Additional states will be added as data processing is completed.
