Summary
Abstract: In 2006, the Eastern Geographic Science Center began a joint project to develop a custom application to provide enhanced public access to USGS’s National Land Cover Database (NLCD). The resulting Land Cover Analysis Tool (LCAT) allows users to quickly locate, display, and download data from the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD), including the recently developed NLCD Change Product, which displays changes in land cover between 1992 and 2001.
