Title: Forest Cover Type - Pine County - 2021

Abstract:
Pine County Cover Type Mapping
Pine county cover type analysis was conducted in fall of 2021 using sentinel-2 imagery and cover type samples collected using MNDNR FIM stands, MNDNR PBI plots, USFS FIA plots, and digitized points using aerial imagery. In total 14 classes were mapped using 264 training plots, a break down of which is available in table 1. Google Earth Engine was used to conduct the randomForest classification and produce the cover type map.
