To determine the vegetation class for each scrub-jay detection, we overlaid detection points on top of the NLCD raster file and noted the number of detections that fell within juniper-oak woodland and shrub-scrub plains classification.
In Detroit, the 2009 satellite-derived LST image--corrected for atmospheric effects and spatial variations in emissivity--as well as the SI image from the 2006 NLCD might be suitable to represent air temperature variability between sites for heat exposure studies in the region or for targeting heat-health interventions.

The source dataset was converted from a vector format to a 30-meter resolution raster dataset for comparison to the GIRAS and NLCD data.
We used robust Poisson models to estimate prevalence ratios (Deddens and Petersen 2008) for the cooccurrence of two dichotomous heat risk-related measures: whether at least half of a subpopulation of a census block group lived in census blocks with no tree canopy reported in the NLCD and at least half of a subpopulation of a census block group lived in census blocks with at least 50% impervious surface.
Figure 2 displays the comparison of impervious cover "predicted" by the best-performing regression model to the "actual" imperviousness measured by the 2006 NLCD.
The NLCD 2001 raster was reclassified using the calculated transmission fractions for hardwood and softwood forest cover-types for each month.
In the 2001 NLCD land cover data, many rural and suburban roads are classified as developed open space.
The NLCD maps are used to initialize the land-use conditions in the region of interest.
We used the NLCD land cover data to classify natural habitat types (scrub/shrub, grassland/herbaceous, and woodland) that were not identified in the SCAG layer.
This model was applied to the Park and data for each class of land cover were extracted from raster layers provided by the Adirondack Park Agency and Adirondack GIS Users Group, vector and raster layers provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the USGS NLCD 2001 raster for the Adirondack Park.
