WATER: Dataset of land use and land cover investigation in the arid region hydrology and forest hydrology experiment areas Chinese Version


The dataset of land use and land cover investigation was obtained in the arid region hydrology and forest hydrology experiment areas. It included:

(1) Land cover investigations in Linze grassland, Yingke oasis, Huazhaizi desert, Dayekou watershed and Zhangye city from May 27 to 31, 2008. GPS data, photos and detailed descriptions were recorded.

(2) Land use and land cover investigations in Yingke oasis, Huazhaizi desert and Biandukou foci experimental areas on Jul. 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15, 2008.

Data were archived in shapefile, spreadsheet or JPGE formats.
