Alaskan Arctic Coastal Plain Polygonal Tundra Geomorphology Map

We mosaicked twelve LandSat-8 OLI satellite images taken during the summer of 2014, which were used in an object based image analysis (OBIA) to classify the landscape. We mapped seventeen of the most dominant geomorphic land cover classes on the Alaskan Coastal Plain (ACP):

value | class name

1 | Coastal saline waters
2 | Large lakes
3 | Medium lakes
4 | Small lakes
5 | Ponds
6 | Rivers
7 | Nonpatterned Drained Thaw Lake Basins
8 | Coalescent low-center polygons
9 | Low-center polygons
10 | Flat-center polygons
11 | High-center polygons
12 | Drained slope
13 | Sandy barrens
14 | Sand dunes
15 | Riparian corridors
16 | Ice
17 | Urban (i.e. towns and roads)
