Overview of the Coast Change Analysis Program (C-CAP)

  1. 1. Putting the Pacific Islands on the National Map Overview of Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) Christine Feinholz NOAA Pacific Services Center
  2. 2. The Coastal Change Analysis Program • National coastal land cover and change mapping program • Inventory of intertidal areas, wetlands, and adjacent upland, produced/updated every 5 years • Consistent, accurate products through standard data and methods “Designed to help improve • Coastal Expression of the National Land Cover Database (NLCD) understanding of linkages between land change and the environment”
  3. 3. We’ve got the CONUS Covered 1996, 2001 Baseline Mapping Complete

  7. 7. C-CAP Classification Scheme Developed Water Developed, High Intensity Open Water Developed, Medium Intensity Palustrine Aquatic Bed Developed, Low Intensity Estuarine Aquatic Bed Developed, Open Space Wetlands Agricultural NLCD Woody Wetlands Cultivated Crops Palustrine Forested Wetland Pasture/Hay Palustrine Scrub/Shrub Wetland C-CAP Hawai`i only Estuarine Forested Wetland Rangeland Estuarine Scrub/Shrub Wetland Grassland/Herbaceous NLCD Herbaceous Wetlands Scrub / Shrub Palustrine Emergent Wetland C-CAP Hawai`i only Estuarine Emergent Wetland Forest Land Deciduous Forest Not Hawai`i Evergreen Forest Mixed Forest Not Hawai`i Barren Land Barren Land Unconsolidated Shore
  8. 8. Moderate Resolution Land Cover • Hawaiian islands will be part of the 2001 National Land Cover Database (NLCD) effort – NOAA and USGS cooperative effort • Derived from 30 meter Landsat multispectral imagery • A “re-release” of existing land cover information for the islands – C-CAP and HI GAP (2001) – We are not remapping the islands – This is not an updated land cover • 2005 products being produced based on high res production
  9. 9. Moderate Resolution Impervious • NLCD product categorizes amount of man-made impervious surface in each 30m pixel – Values range from 0 to 100% • Derived directly from the Quickbird impervious maps – Not a training based classification • Used to directly classify 30m developed categories – i.e. High, Medium, Low Intensity
  10. 10. High Resolution Impervious • Derived from 2.4 meter Quickbird multispectral imagery (2005) • Provide detailed information on location and extent of man-made impervious surfaces • Developed in partnership with State of Hawaii Office of Planning • Available now for 7 of the main 8 islands of Hawaii and Guam – Island of Hawaii available shortly – Hawaii is 75% complete due to clouds
  11. 11. High Resolution Land Cover • Derived from 2.4 meter Quickbird multispectral imagery (2005) • More detailed and up-to-date than previously available land cover information • Island of Oahu Available now – AA to be complete Summer 2008 • Islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Kahoolawe in-progress – Will be released as completed – Anticipated to be complete by December of 2008
  12. 12. Land Cover Tools N-SPECT - Non-point Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool - Downloadable GIS extension - Inputs: Land Cover, Elevation, Precipitation, Soil Characteristics, - Predicts surface water runoff, nonpoint source pollution, and erosion. - Land Cover Change Scenarios http://www.csc.noaa.gov/crs/cwq/nspect.html
  13. 13. Land Cover Tools HPP - Habitat Priority Planner - Downloadable GIS extension - Inputs: Land Cover, project specific points, lines, or polygons - Inventory habitat conditions - Identify, rank, and prioritize conservation sites http://www.csc.noaa.gov/hpp/ - Analyze proposed changes in land use or land cover
  14. 14. Land Cover Tools Digital Coast Land Cover Atlas - Online Land Cover Summary and Analysis Website - Summarizes Land Cover for user defined areas - Will not require GIS software - Publicly Available
