Hinkson Basin Catchment Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) Summary

This dataset was created by dividing the study area watersheds at the confluence of the 8 major tributaries by fine resolution hydrologic drainage catchments. The result defines regions of drainage that contribute to each tributary watershed. LULC was summarized within the catchment polygons in order to perform a cumulative upstream LULC analysis.

  • Subwatershed Area - Total area of polygon in square miles.

  • Subwatershed Name - Name of watershed/tributary that catchment is related to.

  • Crop Acreage - Acreage of crop land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Crop - Percent of crop land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • Forest Acreage - Acreage of forest land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Forest - Percent of forest land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • Grass Acreage - Acreage of grass land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Grass - Percent of grass land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • Impervious Surface Acreage - Acreage of impervious surface land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Impervious Surface - Percent of impervious service land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • Sparsely Vegetated Acreage - Acreage of sparsely vegetated land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Sparsely Vegetated - Percent of sparsely vegetated land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • Water Acreage - Acreage of water land cover/land use within catchment polygon.

  • % Water - Percent of water land cover/land use within catchment polygon.
