The United States Geological Survey (USGS) Land Cover Trends field photography collection is 33,000 ground-referenced photos at a national-scale. The photos initially served as a research tool to aid in Landsat-derived land-use/land-cover (LULC) change analyses and assessments between 1999 and 2009.
