The 2005 land cover for Pennsylvania was created through a mix of
interpretation of remotely sensed data and use of ancillary data sources.
The date actually is a mid-point as the remotely sensed and ancillary data
are representative of the time period 2003-2007.
The coding is based on the Anderson Land Use/Land Cover system, where the
more descriptive detail in the category is reflected by a higher code value.
Further the coding is hierarchical so that each group can be related to other
codes within a general category. For example, in the Anderson system the general
classification of forest is a 4, a deciduous forest is 41, and so on. For a
description of the Anderson system see;
