Title: Land Change Trajectories across Four Watersheds in the Upper Little Tennessee River Basin
Abstract: These data were collected to reconstruct spatially explicit land use/land cover change trajectories that were temporally consistent and at very high accuracies for a selection of watersheds in Macon County, NC: Cartoogechaye, Coweeta, Skeenah and Watauga. Buildings (points) and roads (lines) were digitized from historic maps and aerial photographs and aligned where necessary for temporal consistency. Land cover was simultaneously classified across all years for each 25x25m pixel (1/16 ha) in order to maximize temporal consistency.
