Rio Grande 2012 Vegetation and Water Classification Data in the Big Bend Region
These data are spatial polygon data and remote sensing image-based classification maps of surface water and vegetation species for 2012 along the Rio Grande River in Big Bend National Park in Texas. The geographic extent of the classification spans from the end of Mariscal Canyon to 5 km after the end of Boquillas Canyon, totaling approximately 77 Km of the river. The maps are also restricted to a digitized extent of riparian vegetation that is defined by the alluvial valley of the Rio Grande River. The 2012 classification maps are created using 20 cm multispectral (Near Infrared (NIR), Red and Green) imagery and LiDAR data collected in June 2012. The accuracy assessment for the classification product is based on ground truth data collected in February 2019 and represents all ten species mapped.
