The land cover/use data in key areas of the Qilian Mountain (2018)

This data set is the land use data of the key areas of Qilian mountain in 2018, spatial resolution 2m. This data set is based on the data of climate, altitude, topography, and land cover type of the Qilian mountain. Through the high-resolution remote sensing images to interprets the surface cover types. For the land types that cannot be reflected by the images, collect relevant data in the field, check and correct the land use types. At the same time, the maps and attribute information are uniformly entered and edited to form land use data in the Qilian Mountain area in 2018.
