Title: Land Use & Land Cover, 1980, Snake River Plain, Idaho
Originators: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publisher: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publication place: Boise, ID
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Land use data of the Snake River Plain developed using image processing of 1980 Landsat MSS data. Developed as part of the Regional Aquifer Systems Analysis (RASA). The emphasis was to map irrigated land use. See the following report for details of the project. Hal Anderson, 3/18/83, "1980 Inventory of Irrigated Cropland of the Snake River Plain".
Purpose:
Land use and land cover data for RASA.
Supplemental information:
See the procedures below for an explanation of the geocorrection and mosaicking. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Land cover codes and categories.

The original geocorrected classification files were visually overlayed on Landsat TM data to check for spatial accuracy. Areas of scenes did not register well so we decided to redo the geocorrection using programs in ARC/INFO. The five original classification files were geocorrected using control points selected from Landsat TM data. The control points were selected in ArcView and the classifications were geocorrected using GRIDWARP in ARC/INFO. The output projection was IDTM (Idaho Transverse Mercator). The output pixel size was 57 meters. The five files were mosaicked using MERGE. The final output file is rasa80lc. (The original name was rasa_all).

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.3
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
