Abstract

This dataset documents the important categorical land use changes from 2001 to 2011 for the basins in the Wasatch Range Metropolitan Area (WRMA). Four cross-tabulation matrixes are provided, to summarize the changes of categorical land uses at Bear River Basin, Weber River Basin, Utah Lake Basin and Jordan River Basin.

These matrixes are useful to compare two maps of land use from different times, and to understand the categorical land use transitions over the time. By breaking down the whole WRMA into four sub-regions, these matrixes also help to compare the different patterns and processes of land use change among the four river basins.

We used year 2001 and 2011 National Land Use and Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) to produce these matrixes. Land use categories used in this dataset include: Water, Development/Open Space, Development/Low Density, Development/ Medium Density, Development /High Density, Barren, Forest, Scrubland, Grassland, Pasture, Cultivated Crops, and Wetland.

Data Collection Method We used year 2001 and 2011 National Land Use and Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) to produce these matrixes. We consolidated the land use categories of both datasets into: Water, Development/Open Space, Development/Low Density, Development/ Medium Density, Development /High Density, Barren, Forest, Scrubland, Grassland, Pasture, Cultivated Crops, and Wetland. Then we overlaid two datasets to calculate the categorical land use changes from 2001-2011.
