Green Vegetation Fraction High-Resolution Maps for Selected US Tidal Marshes, 2015

This dataset provides 30m resolution maps of the fraction of green vegetation within tidal marshes for six estuarine regions of the conterminous United States: Cape Cod, MA; Chesapeake Bay, MD; Everglades, FL; Mississippi Delta, LA; San Francisco Bay, CA; and Puget Sound, WA. Maps were derived from a 1m classification of 2013 to 2015 National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) images as tidal marsh green vegetation, non-vegetation, and open water. Using this high-resolution map, the percent of each class within Landsat pixel extents was calculated to produce a 30m fraction of green vegetation map for each region.
