Title(s):Main Title: Enhanced land use classification of 2017 for the Rur catchment
Description(s):Abstract: This data set contains the Enhanced land use classification of 2017 for the study area of the CRC/Transregio 32: "Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Systems: monitoring, modelling and data assimilation", which corresponds to the catchment of the river Rur. The study area is mainly situated in the western part of North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) and parts of the Netherlands and Belgium. The classification is provided in GeoTIFF format. Spatial resolution: 15 m; Projection: WGS84, UTM Zone 32N.

Specific Informations - Data
Temporal Extent:2016/01/01 - 2016/12/31
Lineage:The land use classification is derived from supervised, multi temporal remote sensing data analysis using Landsat 8 (L8) and RapidEye (RE). For the land use analysis datasets of the following acquisition dates were employed: May 17 (RE), May 25 (RE), May 29, (L8), June 14 (L8), and September 24 (RE). Full coverage of the study area was only available for the second L8 image and thus the crop classification is partly affected in its depth of information. For the assessment of the crop classification accuracy refer to the error matrix on the last page. To enhance the information content of the land use data product, the Multi-Data Approach (MDA) was applied to combine the remote sensing derived land use information with additional data sets like the ‘Authorative Topographic-Cartographic Information System’ (ATKIS Basis-DLM) and ‘Physical Block’ information. Furthermore, OpenStreetMap (OSM) data were integrated outside of the ATKIS coverage to enhance the information content on the road network, settlement areas and the course of the river Rur in the Netherlands and Belgium. ## The methodology of the MDA is described in more detail in Waldhoff et al. 2017, Bareth & Waldhoff (2018) and Waldhoff (2014). --- The classification is provided in GeoTIFF and in ASCII format.
