Title(s):Main Title: Preliminary land use classification of 2016 for the Rur catchment
Description(s):Abstract: This data set contains the preliminary land use classification of 2016 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 Sentinel-2 (S2) and RapidEye (RE). For the land use analysis datasets of the following acquisition dates were employed: April 20 (S2), May 8 (RE), June 9 (RE), August 16 (RE) and September 8 (RE). Full coverage of the study area was not available for all acquisition dates 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 Basic-DLM, AAA schema) and ‘Physical Block’ information. Furthermore, OpenStreetMap (OSM) data were integrated to update the information on the road network, settlement areas in the Netherlands where CorineLandCover data were outdated, and the course of the river Rur in the Netherlands. The methodology of the MDA is described in more detail in Waldhoff & Bareth (2008), Waldhoff et al. (2012) and Waldhoff (2014). The classification is provided in GeoTIFF and in ASCII format.
