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.
