Hi Zinhle

I am not aware of landcover in KZN in 1990. Perhaps there was a provincial initiative that I am not aware of.

The first South African NLC map was published in 1996 and is termed NLC 94. It was produced by the joint efforts of the CSIR and ARC.  The SANDF was also involved. It was produced It was produced from geo-referenced (rubber-sheeted) single-date Landsat TM 1994-1995 images known as SpaceMaps.  Classification was done using manual photo-interpretation and literally tracing off the “SpaceMaps”. Paper printouts were produced at a scale of 1:250 000 using the same grid as the NGI 1: 250K National Map Series.  This was based on a minimum mapping unit of 25 ha. 31 Land cover classes were identified.  The data was later digitised and I am sure SANSA has a copy of this.

See,  DHK Fairbanks, MW Thompson, DE Vink, TS Newby, HM Van den Berg, DA Everard: The South African land –cover characteristics database: A synopsis of the landscape. SAJS. 96 (2): 69-82, 2000.

Good Day,

1)      Has anyone ever had success downloading data off the DEA EGIS site?
2)      Can someone please direct me to where I can get landcover 1990, specifically for KZN?

Thank you

Kind Regards
