Urban Imperviousness

NLCD imperviousness products represent urban impervious surfaces as a percentage of developed surface over every 30-meter pixel in the United States. The NLCD 2021 release is update based, so the Impervious Surface products released in 2019 are unchanged and can be used directly with NLCD 2021.This update provides integrated analysis throughout all dates and includes a matching impervious surface descriptor layer. This descriptor layer identifies types of roads, wind tower sites, building locations, and energy production sites to allow a deeper analysis of developed features. No new imperviousness products for Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are available for NLCD 2021. (Read More)

Tree Canopy

NLCD tree canopy cover geospatial datasets with spatial resolutions of 30 m are produced by the USDA Forest Service. Tree canopy cover is derived from multi-spectral satellite imagery and other available ground and ancillary information. Tree canopy products for the period 2011-2021 are available for the conterminous United States, and by summer 2023, they will also cover coastal south east Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
