By now you all have probably heard that the 2011 National Land Cover Database (NLCD) has been released. It is always exciting to get another snapshot of land cover that is consistent across our entire landscape.
I was even more excited after listening into the webinar “The NLCD, Current Results and Future Plans”. In this webinar Dr Homer announced the 2015/16 plans to complete historical epochs every 5 years back to 1985. This will produce a 30 year NLCD consistent record for land cover. Check out the webinar recording to learn more about this effort.
