Data Description

Land Use Land Cover Fall 1999 (raster)

Data available online through GeoStor at This map depicts the land-use and land-cover of Arkansas as it occurred in the fall of 1999, and is one of three statewide map layers designed to show land-use changes throughout the year. Maps were also produced for spring and summer. The data are derived from Landsat TM 5 scenes and extensive ground-truth information. The maps focus primarily on agricultural land-use: crop and pasture lands. The maps consist of a broad based inventory of land-use and land-cover. Map categories fall with 6 broad “Level 1” categories: water, forest, barren, herbaceous, agricultural lands, and urban. Each level 1 category is broken into several, more discrete, “Level 2” subcategories, e.g. crop type, pasture type, etc. Forest categories (101 through 128) are those derived by the 1992 Arkansas Gap project and species listed are indicator species. Detailed information on the categories and the species associated with them are provided at The following is a listing of the Level 2 Category Codes and Labels 11 Urban Level 1 12 Urban Level 2 13 Urban Level 3 14 Urban Other (Park, Golf Course, Cemetery, etc.) 21 Major Roads 22 Railroads 23 Airports/Landing Strips 31 Barren Land (Sand Bars/Mining Operations/Exposed Rock) 41 Perennial Water 42 Flooded 101 Forest Unclassified 102 Shortleaf Pine (Pinus Echinata) 103 Loblolly Pine (Pinus Taeda) 104 Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus Virginiana) 105 White Oak, Northern Red Oak, Shortleaf Pine, Hickory 106 Loblolly Pine, Shortleaf Pine, Oak 107 Eastern Red Cedar, Mixed Pine-Hardwood 108 American Beech (Fagus grandifolia) 109 White Oak, Mixed Hardwoods 110 Northern Red Oak, Mixed Oak 111 Southern Red Oak, Mixed Oak 112 Post Oak (Quercus stellata) 113 Eastern Red Cedar, Oak 114 Shortleaf Pine, Oak 115 White Cedar, Oak 116 Oak, Black Hickory (Quercus spp. Carya Texana) 117 Overcup Oak (Quercus Lyrata) 118 Water Hickory (Carya Aquatica) 119 Cherrybark Oak (Quercus Falcata var.
