Abstract:The results of this accuracy assessment analysis clearly demonstrate that the enhanced U.S. Department of Agriculture NASS CDL product, produced for thefirst time in 2007 for Illinois, is sufficiently accurate to be used by natural resource agencies and other organizations needing regional land cover information on a recurring basis. Prior to 2007, detailed non-agricultural land cover was not well characterized by NASS, and the 1999-2002 multiagency-funded project to combine USDA NASS’ agricultural land cover with non-agricultural cover separately produced by state personnel was determined to be costly and required an additional year of effort for integration of the two classification maps.
