Landuse/landcover data of Tarim Rivers (2000)

Landuse/landcover data of Tarim Rivers (2000)

The data is the land cover data set of Tarim River Basin, which comes from "China's 1:100000 land use data set" in 2000. It is constructed based on LANDSAT MSS, TM and ETM Remote Sensing Data in three years by means of satellite remote sensing. Using a hierarchical land cover classification system, this data divides the whole country into six first-class categories (cultivated land, forest land, grassland, water area, urban and rural areas, industrial and mining land, residential land and unused land), and 31 second-class categories. The attribute fields are area, perimeter, code, and name.
