Identify Directory

File, Tools, Identify directory.  This will write a recognition file in the directory, so MICRODEM can identify the data and act intelligently.

For MICRODEM to recognize NLCD, you must do one of the following.  

  1. Index the NLCD  in the map library,  in c:\mapdata\indexed_data\LANDCOVER\NLCD-1990  or c:\mapdata\indexed_data\LANDCOVER\NLCD-2001 which allows automatic loading for the NLCD covering a region of interest.
  2. Put a file named "NLCD-1990" or "NLCD-2001" in the directory with the TIFF files using the File, Tools, Identify Directory menu choice.
  3. Insure that the words NLCD and the year (1991, 2001, 2006, or 2011) appear in the file name or the path.

Do not put NLCD canopy or impervious cover files in the same directories as the NLCD land cover.
