    Description

    Three alternatives using digital thematic mapper (TM), analog TM, and a combination of either digital or analog TM data with low altitude photography are discussed for level I and level II land use/land cover classes for a proposed national inventory. Digital TM data should prove satisfactory for estimating acreage in level I classes, although estimates of precision may be unreliable. Either the digital or the analog TH combined with low-altitude photography (LAP) are expected to yield satisfactory estimates for most level I and level II classes. Reliable estimates of precision can be obtained for those classes where LAP is "truth".
