Data Layer Information (CDL)
The 2006 Illinois Cropland Data Layer (CDL) was constructed from Indian Resourcesat-1
Field Sensor (IRS AWiFS) imagery,
courtesy of USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. The ground truth for this product utilized the NASS
Agricultural Survey (approximately 398 sq. miles
from a stratified random Area Frame Survey).
The Cropland Data Layer was produced using
software, modified supervised clustering
maximum likelihood classifier. The CDL Atlas was created using ArcGIS software from the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). Each page contains a separate Illinois county.
