Data Application and Derivation:

Data to be used in spatial analysis of land use and land cover change.

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

Topographic maps were georeferenced with RMS<1.0; digitization of topographic maps was conducted at the finest scale possible while still maintaining visual orientation of the rest of the map to allow for accurate tracing and digitization.

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

Data from Brazil were digitized from INCRA maps and other data from IBGE (Brazil).



Please refer to the following websites:



-INCRA (http://www.incra.gov.br)



-IBGE (http://www.ibge.gov.br)



Shapefiles were created from digitized maps that were scanned and georeferenced to previously rectified images/data using ESRI-ArcGIS 9.1 and ERDAS Imagine 8.7.
