abstract Land use for NSF study watersheds in Union and Centre counties, PA, sampled with automated stream samplers and spot sampling. The Union Co. planning department provided an ARC/INFO coverage of land use patches digitized from their own April 1994 b/w digital orthophotographs by RKR Hess Consultants. Using the same orthophotographs, we added lines dividing agricultural land into land use patches. Classifications were field verified in September 1997. Crop and animal types were also recorded for agricultural patches.
