Kitts, Nevis, St. Most of the maps are based on Landsat imagery and are the first satellite image-based maps to show detailed forest types of several Caribbean islands with a consistent classification scheme. Beard during work with the Forestry Division of Trinidad and Tobago in the s. The authors found that land cover in lowland areas has changed dramatically over the second half of the 20th century.
This is the main page of the GeoCAS web mapping portal. The state-of-the-art in Geographic Information Science and applications is the integration of WebGIS into the core scientific spatial and geospatial analysis workflows and applications. With the unprecedented increase in global network and communication capacities and capabilities, along came the need for providing scientifically sound and robust tools and applications available for scientists, students, professionals, institutions, organizations and communities at large.

Jump to main content. This web mapping application includes data layers to facilitate analysis of land cover and water quality change over time, including satellite and aerial imagery, land cover datasets from a variety of data sources and time periods, in-situ sampling data of benthic coral, ten years of daily turbidity and chlorophyll-a data from the MODIS satellite, and ten years of daily precipitation estimates from the national weather service. Because of the extremely large volume of data provided on this site and the use of shared infrastructure to make this data available, it may take some time for map layers to appear, particularly the detailed water quality data.

This data set consists of land cover derived from high resolution imagery and was analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program C-CAP protocol to determine land cover. This data set utilized 3 Quickbird multispectral scenes. These full scenes were sufficient to replace cloud obscured areas within the base imagery.
