North Temperate Lakes LTER Northern Highlands Lake District Land Use - Land Cover 1930s
Land use/land cover was interpreted from historical aerial photographs for riparian buffer zones surrounding 50 lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin. Photography from the 1930s, 1960s, and 1990s were interpreted, resulting in land use/land cover data for three time periods. Mapping changes in land use/land cover in the riparian buffer zones surrounding lakes in Vilas County, Wisconsin Note: Where riparian zones of two lakes overlap, polygons representing both lakes' buffers are present. Thus, while the area measurements for individual lakes are correct, they cannot be used for calculations over the entire study area because overlap areas will be counted twice.
