The Chesapeake Conservancy's Conservation Innovation Center has partnered with the Pima County Government to produce a high resolution land cover dataset for a study area in Pima County, AZ. Pima County seeks to utilize high resolution land cover for their planning applications, and Esri's new GIS software, ArcPro 2.0,was able to step in and execute the classification workflow from data preprocessing all the way through to completion with a quality control process. The project utilized the classification tools in ArcPro to produce land cover data at 2 ft resolution for the city of Tucson, and 1m resolution for the surrounding desert regions. ArcPro has proven to be an affordable, effective platform for classifying imagery. This presentation will go over the workflow, successes, and challenges of high resolution mapping in a desert landscape.
