      ISSUE 3: Land cover mapping, land cover classifications, and accounting units Land cover classification for ecosystem accounting Prepared by Antonio di Gregorio (FAO), Gabriel Jaffrain (IGN-FI) and Jean-Louis Weber (EEA) 1. Introduction Land cover is an observable image of the many processes taking place on the land surface. It reflects land. After completion of the land cover, biennial updates have been done using a disturbance database to identify areas of change. Learn More about LANDFIRE Base Mapping. Classification Scheme. Previous land cover mapping projects made clear the need for a nationally consistent classification scheme mappable at a meso-scale.

      Land use/land cover classification system: With the changing times and increasing demand on the availability of information on land use/land cover, it becomes necessary to have a standard classification system, precise definition of land use/land cover and its categories, uniform procedures of data collection and mapping on different scales for. The current land use map is used extensively throughout the planning process and will serve as the basis of comparison for land use alternatives that the community considers. Figures 4 and 5 on pages 23 and 24 show two examples of current land use maps. The first is an example of a current urban land use map and the second is a rural town’s map.

      Land cover is the physical material at the surface of the earth. Land covers include grass, asphalt, trees, bare ground, water, etc. Earth cover is the expression used by ecologist Frederick Edward Clements that has its closest modern equivalent being vegetation.: 52 The expression continues to be used by the United States Bureau of Land Management. There are two primary methods for capturing. 4.

A Standard Classification System for the Mapping of Land Use and Land Cover State of North Carolina Governor's Office of State Planning Center for Geographic Information and Analysis January Preface In response to a requirement to map land cover in.

The classification system has been developed to meet the needs of Federal and State agencies for an up-to-date overview of land use and land cover throughout the country on a basis that is uniform in categorization at the more generalized first and second levels and that will be receptive to data from satellite and aircraft remote sensors.

The Land Cover Classification System (LCCS) is a comprehensive, standardized a priori classification system, designed to meet specific user requirements, and created for mapping exercises, independent of the scale or means used to map.

Any land cover identified anywhere in the world can be readily accommodated. Although the terms "land cover" and "land use" are sometimes used interchangeably, they are actually different. Simply put, land cover is what covers the surface of the earth and land use describes how the land is used.

Examples of land cover classes include: water, snow, grassland, deciduous forest, and bare soil. Problems with current classification systems. Purpose. Consistency. The underlying common principle. A priori classification systems.

The basis for a new approach. Adopted definition of land cover. A new approach to classification. Land cover classification system: design criteria. Land Cover mapping• Land cover is the physical material at the surface of the earth.

Land covers include grass, asphalt, trees, bare ground, water, etc.• The objective of any classification scheme is to simplify the real world in order to facilitate communication and decision making.•.

Conclusions Glossary Bibliography Biographical Sketch Summary The paper illustrates different data-collection tools available for gathering primary data on land cover and land use.

Mapping and Analysis of Land Use and Land Cover for a Sustainable Development Using High Resolution Satellite Images and GIS Innocent EZEOMEDO and Joel IGBOKWE, Nigeria 1. INTRODUCTION Land is definitely one of the most important natural resources, since life and developmental activities are based on the it.

Doi () refers land use to the human activity or economic function associated with a specific piece of land whereas the land cover is the type of feature actually present on the surface of the earth. Land use differs from land cover because of the intentional role of people to adapt the natural land cover.

the routine collection of land use and land cover data. Australia • Australian Land Use and Management Classification Framework (ALUM) • is a nationally agreed system for classifying land use • framework is a hierarchical classification based on land use, land management practices and other land occupation attributes.

The queen of the thematic maps is the land use/land cover map. Alinovi L., Di Gregorio A., Kalensky S.D.,FAO Methodologies for Land Cover Classification and Mapping. Chapter of the book: Remote Sensing and GIS Applications for Linking People, Place and Policy, S.J.

Walsh and K.A. Crews-Meyer (Eds.) Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston. The aim of the classification is to establish a national system (or nomenclature) for naming and defining groups of land use and land cover features.

It has been designed to serve as a standard. The Land Based Classification Standards (LBCS) model extends the notion of classifying land uses by refining traditional categories into multiple dimensions, such as activities, functions, building types, site development character, and ownership constraints.

Each dimension has its own set of. Land Cover Classification System (LCCS) The Land Cover Classification System (LCCS) was developed by FAO to provide a consistent framework for the classification and mapping of land cover. Development initiated research to harmonize land cover classification at the regional scale and address the immediate needs of the Hindu Kush Himalayan R egion.

Harmonization of the classification system is facilitating the generation of land cover maps that can be used consistently for studies of change. LBCS also includes a set of color codes, to be used as a standard convention for top-level land-use categories for maps, GIS, and other rendering and presentation media.

Each of the five LBCS dimensions has nine color values; one for each top-level category. Land-Use Classification Land-use classification schemes typically address both land use and land cover.

A major land-use classification system developed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has multiple levels of classification. The categories within these levels are arranged in a nested hierarchy. Page 1 - Land use statistics are required for a variety of planning purposes at the local, regional, and State levels.

The need is growing for the collection of land use information in a form that will allow comparability between localities and between regions, and that will also permit the study of trends over time in individual urban areas. Many land use, land cover, and land use/land cover classifications have been developed For example, the U.S.

Geological Survey used a modified version of what is referred to as the Anderson classification system for the National Land Cover Data (NLCD) classification scheme.

Web Map Service (WMS) - is a standard protocol for serving. Cost-effective land cover planning and management can be achieved over large areas with remotely-sensed land cover mapping data.

Land cover mapping classifies the current land conditions to a series of land cover categories. Comparing two or more similar land cover classifications can provide insight into change occurring on the landscape.a single-date land cover map by classification of a cloud-free composite generated from Landsat images; and complete an accuracy assessment of the map output.

The tools for completing this work will be done using a suite of open-source tools, mostly focusing on QGIS. The land cover map .Classification of land: There is no internationally agreed classification of land use and land cover.

Corine land cover and the FAO classification seem to be the most commonly used classifications.
