Brady Canal Hydrologic Restoration TE-28 2008 Habitat Data Conservation Treatment Unit (CTU 3)

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

The Louisiana State Legislature created the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in order to conserve, restore, create, and enhance Louisiana's coastal wetlands. The restoration plans developed persuant to these acts specifically require an evaluation of the effectiveness of each coastal wetland restoration project in achieving long-term solutions to arresting coastal wetland loss. This data set consists of digital data describing wetland and upland habitats for the Brady Canal for the year 2008. The habitat data were derived from interpretation of color infrared photography flown at 1:12000. Wetlands were classified according to the Cowardin, et al., classification scheme, to the level of salinity modifiers. Uplands were classified according to the Anderson, et al., classification scheme. The interpreted habitat data were then scanned, and on-screen clean up was conducted to ensure quality of the digital data.
