The Map Information Assembly and Display System (MIADS) Land Use/Land
Cover Dataset used a grid and encode system to transfer land use/land cover data
from a controlled resource base map to computer. Base maps were referenced to
the Universal transverse Mercator (UTM) map coordinate system. Instructions for
sorting are given through a legend composed of coded resource symbols. The
resulting computer generated county map and data determine extent and location
for the interpretation.
