These data were collected to reconstruct spatially-explicit land use/land cover change trajectories that were temporally consistent and at very high accuracies. The data were developed for four watersheds in Macon County, NC: Cartoogechaye, Coweeta, Skeenah Creek Watershed and Watauga. Buildings (pts) 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. Separate Shapefiles are available for buildings for several years. Buildings for 1906 were digitized from original USGS topographic maps. Buildings for 1929 were digitized from the original Soil Survey. All other years were digitized from aerial photographs. A point is included for each building with the exception of farmyards, where one building was placed in the approximate center of multiple buildings (house, barn, shed, garage, etc). Building locations are snapped between years so that newly constructed or recently removed buildings can be detected for each year. There are no attributes in this data set.
