State Land Cover Descriptions

This interactive map of the conterminous United States provides access to simple State facts and land cover descriptions. Each State includes maps of land cover, percent forest canopy, and percent impervious surface, all derived from the National Land Cover Database 2001 (NLCD, 2001). These State descriptions have been compiled to provide a general overview for scientific researchers, policy makers, and educators to gain a basic understanding of a State's land cover and land use characteristics.

The NLCD 2001 data used to create these map products are accessible from the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium (MRLC) web site.
