Rangeland - Historical Time-Series – BIT
NLCD shrub component historical (Back in Time [BIT]) products characterize the percentage of each 30-meter pixel in the Western United States covered by shrub, sagebrush, herbaceous, annual herbaceous, litter and bare ground for each year from 1985-2018 - providing change trends for 33 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 2007-2018. Trend analysis for each component is also available as a zip file for the full 1985-2018 period to help users understand the magnitude of change. (Read More)
