Abstract

As more and more land cover data sets have been developed, the need to harmonize classification systems for landscape analysis is a frequently proposed solution. This book provides a platform for scholars to reassess the field, affirm successful approaches, and point to future possibilities in advancing LULC semantics. With analysis of land-use/land-cover semantics and explanations of current best practices, the book reviews aspects of data modeling where designers and practitioners should be aware of providing clear and consistent semantic detailS.
