I’m using the CCI land cover dataset with some InVEST annual water yield runs. To set up the table, we need a LULC_veg parameter in the table for each land cover class. The user guide says “Values must be 1 for vegetated land use except wetlands, and 0 for all other land uses, including wetlands, urban, water bodies, etc.”
This is great, but what about the case of “sparse vegetation” (<15% cover) - would that still be considered vegetated? What about lichen or moss cover? My assumption is to code sparse vegetation as 1 and lichen/moss as 0. What are your thoughts?
