Provincial land cover

Provincial land cover The land cover classes consist of vegetation types (such as forest, wetlands and agricultural crops or pasture) and categories of non-vegetated surface (such as water bodies, bedrock outcrops or settlements). These classes reflect the nature of the land surface rather than actual or potential land use. The 2000 Edition of the Ontario Land Cover Data Base is the Second Edition of this provincial land cover classification. The coverage is derived wholly from Landsat-7 Thematic Mapper (TM) satellite data frames recorded between 1999 and 2002, most from 2000 onward. The Provincial Land Cover (2000) Data Base is divided into 4 individual Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid zone tiles (15, 16, 17, and 18) and is distributed in TIFF format. Documentation is provided with this database in the form of a user's guide and general use caveats. *[TIFF]: Tagged Image File Format *[TM]: Thematic Mapper *[UTM]: Universal Transverse Mercator 2022-07-22 Government of Ontario AgricultureEconomics and IndustryNature and EnvironmentAgriculture and FoodEconomy and BusinessEnvironment and Natural ResourcesEnvironment and energyGovernment information Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/c8927d6e-2546-430f-805e-b403777b1668 Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca/fr)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/fr/dataset/c8927d6e-2546-430f-805e-b403777b1668 Provincial land coverZIP https://ws.gisetl.lrc.gov.on.ca/fmedatadownload/Packages/Provincial-Landcover-2000.zip
