This is a comprehensive mapping effort that uses new satellite imagery (Landsat 8), point and field data to create a new base map data suite that represents contemporary conditions.  This effort will leverage changes and advancements in data and science to support the development and production of the next generation vegetation layer.  The two programs have collaborated to form the Remap Strategy Team (RST). The RST is researching improvements in land cover mapping methodology.  The team has selected seven prototype areas representing the major ecosystems across the country and is testing a variety of modeling methods to determine the best strategy for implementing Remap.
