Tree Canopy

NLCD tree canopy cover is a 30 m raster geospatial dataset that is available for the conterminous United States, coastal Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. These data contain percent tree canopy estimates, as a continuous variable, for each pixel across all land covers and types and are generated by the United States Forest Service (USFS). The USFS derives tree canopy cover from multi-spectral Landsat imagery and other available ground and ancillary information. 2011 and 2016 Forest canopy products are available for the Continental United States, coastal Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

RCMAP - Time-Series - Error

The RCMAP product suite includes eight fractional components: annual herbaceous, bare ground, herbaceous, litter, non-sagebrush shrub, perennial herbaceous, sagebrush and shrub, rule-based error maps, and the temporal trends of each. Data characterize the percentage of each 30-meter pixel in the Western United States covered by each component for each year from 1985-2020 - providing change information for 35 years (imagery for 2012 was unavailable). Because of file size limitations, individual component products are packaged in three historic intervals including 1985-1995, 1996-2006, and 2007-2020. (Read More)
