This National Land Cover Database Evaluation Visualization and Analysis (NLCD EVA) tool provides user-friendly access to national and state land cover and land cover change information developed through the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium . NLCD EVA eliminates the need for desktop geographic information system software, or advanced technical expertise, by processing NLCD data for the user and providing easy access to that distilled information. As well as displaying land cover information the tool also summarizes general land change trends as well as providing users with the option to specify and explore specific land change classes of interest (e.g., forest to urban).


  • Help users of all abilities to visually analyze and explore NLCD land cover data
  • Allow users to query specific types of land cover changes between 2001 & 2006, 2006 & 2011, and 2001 & 2011.
  • Generate national and state summary reports and data tables of land cover changes to enhance communication and advance understanding of land changes and trends
