    Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000




In late 1999, the U. S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDA), and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) began a cooperative, interagency initiative to produce statewide land cover information on a recurring basis. The Illinois Interagency Landscape Classification Project (IILCP) completed Cycle 1 of this initiative in the summer of 2002, resulting in the Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 inventory and associated database.

Data Products
The Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 database includes four distinct, but closely interrelated products.

  • Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 Classification
  • Statewide Landsat 7 ETM+ Panchromatic Image Mosaic
  • TM Path/Row Pseudocolor Spectral Class Maps
  • Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 On-Line Statistical Summary

Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 Classification
This is the primary product of the IILCP initiative and is the result of integrating the directed supervised classification of agricultural lands and the unsupervised classification and spectral class labeling of non-agricultural lands. The primary source information for the computer classification is Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite imagery acquired for three dates (triplicates) during the spring, summer, and fall seasons of 1999 and 2000. (see 1999-2000 TM Coverage Map).

For a more detailed explanation of the Land Cover of Illinois 1999-2000 project and to download datasets, visit the Illinois Department of Agriculture's website.
