I am checking out the Landscape Analysis application. Is there a way to put my own data in it?@
To save us some time, what are the data requirements and what format is your data in?
Let's say shapefile and geoTiff, in UTM 15 N projection.
You can certainly use those in Arcmap...my question to you does it contain the required data for the Landscape Analyst? Do you have polygon files? Polyline? point data? what type of attributes in the table(s) and are any of them useful to the Landscape Analyst?
Polygons and raster. My area is part of 4 counties on the Texas Gulf
Coast. I want to put in some of the County Parcels, because I want to
identify large parcels with wooded areas on them ( National Land Cover Data
Set), that are near streams (HUC) and have forested wetlands (National
Wetland Inventory). I also want to identify areas that have slope; In
this generally flat area, there are a few gullies, so I wanted to use a 10
or 3 meter Digital Elevation Model. Because this area is hurricane prone,
and also floods for other reasons, FEMA and some of the counties (e.g. Fort
Bend and the Houston-Galveston Area Council have done Lidar studies that
are very detailed.
The County data sets have the area of the parcel, and an ID number for the
owner (or sometimes a lot of owner information). Each county has a
different Tax Parcel system, Geodatabase or shapefile, that they may make
available to the public. One county is switching over from AutoCAD line
I have been looking through the tutorial. The most helpful Report for me
would be a list of county parcels that underlie an area that meets a
certain criteria from a model from the other layers.
you will need the Spatial analyst extension to produce a surface from the DEM, then you can produce a slope raster. From there, you will have to decide whether you have all the inputs required for the Landscape Analyst
Retrieving data ...
