Abstract

The Image-based Change Estimation (ICE) project resulted from the need to provide estimates and information for land cover and land use change over large areas. The procedure uses Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plot locations interpreted using two different dates of imagery from the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). In order to determine a suitable project workflow, interpretation methods and database options were explored. The results provide useful information for the change occurring between land cover and land use types across two prototype landscapes.
