Statewide Tree Canopy Extraction from NAIP
Tree canopy information plays a crucial role in understanding the geographic location and distribution of natural resources. High-detail tree canopy cover data at a parcel level can be difficult to achieve, especially using only satellite imagery over large areas. Because tree canopy calculations can cover extensive geographic areas, obtaining timely, high-resolution imagery can be expensive and difficult.
To address this issue, the state of North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services repurposed their existing National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery to extract tree canopy cover for the entire state.
