Component products are designed to be used individually or combined together to support a broad variety of applications. Provisional Great Basin shrubland products are now available for download and are based on nominal years 2013/2014 imagery. Future shrubland products are scheduled for mapping across other regions of the Western U.S. and will be made available for download upon completion.
