(OSGeo Edu dataset)
|Used throughout the book||We developed a completely new free geospatial dataset and substituted all Spearfish (SD) examples in the previous editions with this new, much richer North Carolina (NC, USA) data set. This data set is a comprehensive collection of raster, vector and imagery data covering parts of North Carolina (NC), USA (map), prepared from public data sources provided by the North Carolina state and local government agencies and Global Land Cover Facility (GLCF). Data are provided at three hierarchical levels:
The data set includes section of the NC capital city Raleigh and its surroundings. The coordinate system of the ready-to-use GRASS data set is NC State Plane (Lambert Conformal Conic projection), metric units and NAD83 geodetic datum. Additional data are provided in geographic coordinates and NC State Plane, english units (feet) in various external formats.Included maps:
The examples throughout this book are based on this data set. Furthermore, new derivative maps are generated and explained.
