This biology site is within a larger 90 x 90-m land cover site, and near other cover types typical of the students' local area. Such land cover maps may be produced by visual interpretation of a hard copy Landsat satellite image or by computer, using a freeware image processing software called MuitiSpec . The hard-copy image, digital Landsat data, and MuitiSpec are provided to domestic schools by GLOBE. Such student-generated land cover maps will assist scientists in characterizing and validating larger, regional cover types.
