LCMAP products produced by the USGS are available for download at no charge from a variety of sources. This page provides information on the different data access portals and download options.
LCMAP Collection 1.2 products were released in Fall 2021 and are available on EarthExplorer, the LCMAP Web Viewer and CONUS Mosaic websites. Additionally, the products can be visualized using the LCMAP WMS. Collection 1.2 includes LCMAP products for 1985-2019. Previous collections will remain available on EarthExplorer; however, users are encouraged to use the most recent release.
LCMAP Collection 1.0 products will are available on EarthExplorer; however, users are encouraged to use the most recent release.
EarthExplorer allows users to download LCMAP data based on the seamless tiling scheme used by Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD). The LCMAP Collection 1 Science Products are available for search, preview, and download via EarthExplorer and can be found on the Data Sets tab under the LCMAP category, listed as CCDC V1.
There are two data bundles available for download. The LCMAP CCDC V1 Tile Bundle (containing the raster product data) is distributed as a .tar file and the LCMAP CCDC V1 Tile Bundles XML Metadata bundle is distributed as an .xml file.
LCMAP Bulk Orders and Downloads
The Bulk Download Application is a tool for downloading large quantities of LCMAP product bundles. Once scenes are added to a Bulk Order via EarthExplorer, the Bulk Download Application can be used to automatically retrieve them with little to no user interaction. The application will automatically iterate through the bundle list and download each until all have been processed.
The LCMAP Viewer is a web-based data visualization tool that enables users to view and download LCMAP data products, metadata, and animated graphics for a given area.
The download tool allows users to draw a bounding box on the viewer for an area of interest to download data products, metadata, and animated graphics. For areas larger than 350,000 square km, users will be directed to download the datasets from EarthExplorer in ARD tile format.
Once the download button is selected, a window will appear to confirm the order has been submitted and will be processed within 24 hours. Once the order is complete, an email will be sent with 2 links:
The five land surface change products available for download through EarthExplorer (SCTIME, SCMAG, SCLAST, SCSTAB, and SCMQA) and the SCMAG product available through the LCMAP Viewer do not have color ramps applied to them. For the EarthExplorer distributed products, ESRI *.lyr files (compatible with ArcGIS) with the default LCMAP color ramps are provided here. For the LCMAP Viewer products, the appropriate .lyr file is included in the zip file with a README file that details how to apply the color ramps.
The 10 annual science products are available to download as mosaics of the conterminous United States (CONUS) from 1985-2020. The CONUS level science products are available here: https://eros.usgs.gov/lcmap/apps/data-downloads.
The LCMAP Reference Data product is available for download through ScienceBase.
LCMAP product validation data are available to download through ScienceBase.
The 10 LCMAP science products are available to visualize using the LCMAP Web Map Service (WMS) endpoint. Visit the LCMAP WMS landing page to learn how to access the WMS layers. Users can also view the LCMAP WMS directly in a web browser using the LCMAP Web Viewer.
