Data Quality InformationSubstantial ground truthing has taken place in coastal watersheds to insure the accuracy of this coverage when used at the appropriate scale.
Use ConstraintsThe USFS Landsat vegetation data averages stand conditions and is accurate at a 1 Hectare scale. The data is not accurate at pixel (30 meter) scale because of averaging and is not to be used at that scale.
