This map is a re-projection of the Land Cover Classification map created by CIESIN from a September 23, 1999 LandSat image. The CIESIN map, in UTM zone 18, meters, was first exported to Ascii format, then imported as a Grid in ArcVIew 3.2, and finally re-projected to State Plane New York East zone, feet, NAD83 using Grid Analyst. The grid cell resolution is 98.425 feet.
This ESRI grid was created to register with, and to be used with, all other Westchester County GIS data.
This data belongs to, and may be used by permission from, Westchester County GIS. The County logo and GIS logo must be prominently displayed on any map created uysing this data.
