Landsat MSS Land Cover Map of Northern Alaska (Muller et al. 1999)

This map was created for the US National Science Foundation Land-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions (LAII) Flux Study and the Arctic Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (ATLAS) Study (OPP-9318530 and OPP-9415554).

The map covers all of northern Alaska, from the Brooks Range divide to the coast. It is a raster (tif) map, with 50 m pixels, and 9 land cover categories. It is based on an unsupervised classification of a Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) composite created by the National Mapping Division, U.S. Geological Survey EROS data center, Anchorage, Alaska. Geobotanical maps and earlier Landsat-derived maps of the region were used to interpret the spectral classes.
