What can you do with SpatialCover Tree Canopy?

The SpatialCover Tree Canopy South Carolina dataset supports numerous applications for urban planning, forest inventory and ecosystem analysis.


EarthDefine used a Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) processing workflow to create the SpatialCover Tree Canopy South Carolina dataset. Multiple ancillary datasets including transportation framework vectors, TIGER demographic data, hydrological, cadastral and terrain data were used along with color infrared aerial imagery to develop an object based classification workflow. Over 1.1 billion image-objects were created from over 20,369 square miles of 1m resolution source imagery and classified through our GEOBIA platform to create a 6-class classification with an overall accuracy of 96.2%. The SpatialCover Tree Canopy layer was processed from the base SpatialCover Land Cover for South Carolina to prioritize the classification of trees.
