Landsat woody extent and foliage projective cover (FPC) Ver 2.1 (25m) 2008

The cht stage raster shows the extent of woody vegetation at 2008 and also shows the percentage Foliage Projective Cover (FPC) for the woody areas. It is based on a time series of Landsat FPC images from 1988-2008 and uses time series statistics in decision tree approach to identify woody areas and asign an FPC value to them. A companion chu stage raster indicates the rules applied for assigning the FPC ot non-woody codes in the cht raster. The cht raster has been used to generate statistics relating to the woody vegetation cover in NSW. This product is useful for vegetation mapping, modelling and carbon accounting applications.; ; This FPC data can also be interpreted as woody basal area and biomass using look-up tables based on allometric equations using image mosaic files covering NSW or MGA Zones.
