I am attempting to do a Barn Owl habitat selection study utilizing Landsat data.  I have the flight paths and locations of the owls plotted.  I want to clip and buffer the flight paths out of the Landsat image/data.  I want to be able get a percent coverage of each habitat type within the owls' buffered flight paths.  The problem is I cannot simply get the information from just the landsat image.  I need to be able to get the information on the land cover when I click on the portion of the map inside the buffer zone(using the Identify Tool).  I'm hoping this will also let me get the information on an attribute table and be able to calculate the percent coverage for further analysis.  Has anyone ever utilized Landsat data for a similar purpose?
