The following sections describe how to use the Automated Classify Land Use command and interact with the above dialog box.

General Specifications

In this section, the user can specify the name of the land use layer. By default, the land use layer name is Classified Land Use which can be changed by the user.

Classify Land Use Limits

In this section, the user can choose one of the following three options for defining the classify land use limits:

  • Current screen limits: The software will use the existing extent of the Map View screen display as a boundary limit for the land use layer to be created.
  • User-defined limits: The user can click on the [Pick] button and draw a rectangle on the Map View representing the user-defined limits for the land use layer to be created.
  • Model limits: If a project model has been defined, this option will create a bounding rectangular region corresponding to the extents of the defined model, plus an additional buffer boundary.

After all the options have been defined, click the [OK] button. The software will then download the land use layer data and create a land use layer. The software will also display the land use layer data on the Map View as shown below.

After the land use layer data is downloaded, the software will then place the downloaded land use layer in the Map Data Layers panel. Expand the layer to see the land use classifications in detail.
