Land Change Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection Collection 1.1 Science Products

June 29, 2021

LCMAP Science Products are developed by applying time-series modeling to U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD) to detect land surface change. An application of the Continuous Change Detection and Classification (CCDC, Zhu and Woodcock 2014) was developed by the LCMAP Science Team at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center (Brown et al., 2020). LCMAP Collection v1.1 Science Products include ten annual products for the years 1985 to 2019. The final year of products in the dataset, 2017, are considered provisional for the initial release (see LCMAP Science Product Guide for more information). There are five land surface change products, produced directly from CCDC time series models, and five land cover products, produced by the classification of the time series models.
