A dengue risk map was developed using LST, NDVI and LCLU layers and converting their pixel values into the above mentioned scale values.
The 1980 observed data was the baseline from which model simulations began and was used as input data for existing LCLU and to develop employment projections for the blind simulations.
However, very few studies in the United States have evaluated how these LCLU classifications and living environments affect human health.
The study is an urban to subregional scale investigation that uses 1-km data products from NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) for day and night LST and 30-m LCLU information from the 2001 National Land Cover Data (NLCD-2001).
The NLCD-2001 product at 30-m spatial resolution represents land cover based on Landsat 7 data from 1999-2003 and provides 16 LCLU classes (an additional four classes are avail able in Alaska only and another nine classes in coastal areas).
A methodology was developed using the NLCD-2001 LCLU grids over the study area to delineate rural, suburban, and urban zones and resample to a 1-km grid.
