Description Because of the profound effect of urban development on aquatic systems, characterizing the land cover of a region is critical for a variety of resource management applications. In the Pacific Northwest, this characterization has been used most commonly to correlate the intensity of human activity with observed stream or wetland conditions, in order to predict the health of the stream system or to guide the allocation of mitigation efforts. Unfortunately, there is little consistency or quality...
