Description

This dataset provides maps of tidal marsh green vegetation, non-vegetation, and open water for six estuarine regions of the conterminous United States: Cape Cod, MA; Chesapeake Bay, MD, Everglades, FL; Mississippi Delta, LA; San Francisco Bay, CA; and Puget Sound, WA. Maps were derived from current National Agriculture Imagery Program data (2013-2015) using object-based classification for estuarine and palustrine emergent tidal marshes as indicated by a modified NOAA Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) map. These 1m resolution maps were used to calculate the fraction of green vegetation within 30m Landsat pixels for the same tidal marsh regions and these data are provided in a related dataset.
