Land Cover

The National Land Cover Database (NLCD) provides nationwide data on land cover and land cover change at a 30m resolution with a 16-class legend based on a modified Anderson Level II classification system.  The database is designed to provide cyclical updates of United States land cover and associated changes. Systematically aligned over time, the database provides the ability to move beyond simple change detection to monitoring and trend assessments. The latest evolution of NLCD products continues to focus on consistency, production efficiency, and product accuracy. NLCD products are designed for widespread application in biology, climate, education, land management, hydrology, environmental planning, risk and disease analysis, telecommunications and visualization.
