This layer contains several land classifications from GeoBase 250K Land Cover, Circa 2000 - Vector. Land classifications include: Perennial Cropland, Annual Cropland, Cultivated Agricultural Land, Bryoids, Developed, Rock/Rubble, Snow/Ice and Unclassified. Land Cover information is the result of vectorization of raster thematic data originating from classified Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 ortho-images, for agricultural and forest areas.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_ENVIRONMENTAL_MONITORING.NRC_OTHER_LAND_COVER_250K_SP

Short Name: NRCTHRLNDC
Comments: OTHER LAND COVER 250K SP contains Other Land Cover from GeoBase 250K Land Cover, Circa 2000 - Vector. Lands classified as any type of Forest, Shrubland, Exposed Land, Wetlands, Water, Herb and Grassland are stored in separate layers. OTHER LAND COVER 250K SP includes Rock/Rubble, Snow/Ice, Developed, Cultivated Agricultural Land, Perennial Cropland, Annual Cropland, Bryoids, and Unclassified. Land Cover information is the result of vectorization of raster thematic data originating from classified Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 ortho-images, for agricultural and forest areas. This is a multipart polygon layer.
