Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000 The “Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000” is a thematic land cover classification representative of Circa 2000 conditions for agricultural regions of Canada. Land cover is derived from Landsat5-TM and/or 7-ETM+ multi-spectral imagery by inputting imagery and ground reference training data into a Decision-Tree or Supervised image classification process. Object segmentation, pixel filtering, and/or post editing is applied as part of the image classification. Mapping is corrected to the GeoBase Data Alignment Layer. National Road Network (1:50,000) features and other select existing land cover products are integrated into the product. UTM Zone mosaics are generated from individual 30 meter resolution classified scenes. A spatial index is available indicating the Landsat imagery scenes and dates input in the classification. This product is published and compiled by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), but also integrates products mapped by other provincial and federal agencies; with appropriate legend adaptations. This release includes UTM Zones 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 for corresponding agricultural regions in Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Québec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia covering approximately 370,000,000 hectares of mapped area. Mapped classes include: Water, Exposed, Built-up, Shrubland, Wetland, Grassland, Annual Crops, Perennial Crops and Pasture, Coniferous, Deciduous and Mixed forests. However, emphasis is placed on accurately delineating agricultural classes, including: annual crops (cropland and specialty crops like vineyards and orchards), perennial crops (including pastures and forages), and grasslands. 2009-04-01 2017-12-12 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Form DescriptorsLand useEarth sciencesRemote sensing Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (No linguistic component)GeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/lcv/circa2000Landcover/tif/ Pre-packaged FGDB files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/lcv/circa2000Landcover/fgdb/dateIndexlandcoverCirca2000_fgdb.zip Pre-packaged GML files (Bilingual)GML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/lcv/circa2000Landcover/gml/dateIndexlandcoverCirca2000_gml.zip Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/en/ISO_19131_Land_Cover_for_Agricultural_Regions_of_Canada_Circa_2000_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Landcover Classifications (English)XLS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/en/landcover_classifications.xls Legend (English)PNG http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/en/legend.PNG Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/fr/Couverture_des_terres_des_regions_agricoles_du_Canada_vers_l_an_2000_Specifications_de_contenu_informationnel_produites_conformement_a_la.pdf Landcover Classifications (French)XLS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/fr/Classification_Couverturedesterres.XLS Legend (French)PNG http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/circa2000Landcover/fr/legende.PNG Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000WMS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/landcover_circa_2000/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000WMS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/coverture_des_terres_vers_an_2000/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000ESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/landcover_circa_2000/ImageServer Land Cover for Agricultural Regions of Canada, circa 2000ESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/coverture_des_terres_vers_an_2000/ImageServer
