Land Change Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection (LCMAP) represents a new generation of land cover mapping and change monitoring from the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center. LCMAP answers a need for higher quality results at greater frequency with additional land cover and change variables than previous efforts.
LCMAP offers a suite of 10 annual data products that depict land cover and spectral change in the conterminous United States. LCMAP Collection 1.2 has been released, with annual updates to follow.
