I am first and foremost an ecologist working to promote the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. I enjoy finding solutions to problems on this site that I otherwise would not have exposure to in my day-to-day work.

Specialties: Remote sensing, GIS, spatial statistics, big data, wildlife conservation, and landscape ecology. My work focuses mainly on multispectral and Lidar remote sensing for assessing vegetation structure and composition.

"The feed-forward back-propagation multi-layer perceptron (MLP) is the type of neural network most commonly encountered in remote sensing..." Atkinson and Tatnall, 2010 International Journal of Remote Sensing

Welcome to the site. It is best to provide some background into what you have done. Otherwise, posts can come off as "Here's my code--fix it", which is discouraged at GIS Stack Exchange.

comment Estimating tree cover (or other vegetative cover) over impervious cover using NLCD data
+1 Just curious why you would want to deal with NLCD to do this when there are much better datasets that would yield higher accuracy for the land cover types you are talking about?

In addition to Brad's comments, could you please explain why you want to do this? This could be helpful in finding a new approach.
