Abstract:
This data publication contains 2015 high-resolution land cover data for each of the 669 communities within Kansas. These data are a digital representation of land cover derived from 1-meter aerial imagery from the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). There is a separate file for each community. Data are intended for use in cities and towns. Land cover classes (tree cover, other vegetation, bare land, built-up land, and water) were mapped using an object-based image analysis approach and supervised classification.
