Land Cover (C-CAP)

NOAA | Spatial Datasets

Land cover maps depict where and how much of a region is covered by forests, wetlands, development, and other natural and man-made features. Documenting changes in the landscape can alert communities to emerging trends, information that is useful when predicting and assessing cumulative impacts in the light of climate stressors, such as sea level rise. For more information contact coastal.info@noaa.gov.

"We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
