1990 Kansas Land Cover Patterns Update

Metadata Updated: May 17, 2013

In 2008, an update of the 1990 Kansas Land Cover Patterns (KLCP) database was undertaken. The 1990 KLCP database depicts 10 general land cover classes for the State of Kansas. The database was compiled from a digital classification of single-date Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery. The update version differs from the original release in four ways. First, the data format for the original release was an ArcInfo coverage, while the update release is an ArcInfo GRID. Second, the original's projection was Geographic with NAD83 datum. The update's projection is Albers Conic Equal Area with NAD83 datum. Third, the coding scheme for land cover classes was changed to match the coding scheme used in the 2005 Kansas Land Cover Patterns database. Fourth, an additional generalization procedure that was utilized for the 2005 KLCP database was applied to the 1990 KLCP database (see addendum to Process Description). This update facilitates comparing the 1990 KLCP dataset to the 2005 KLCP dataset on a more equal basis.
