2013 C-CAP Derived 10 meter Land Cover - BETA

Metadata Updated: April 15, 2024

The NOAA Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) produces national standardized land cover and change products for the coastal regions of the U.S. C-CAP products inventory coastal intertidal areas, wetlands, and adjacent uplands with the goal of monitoring changes in these habitats. The timeframe for this data is 2013. These maps are developed through the automated classification of high resolution National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery, available Lidar digital elevation data, and assorted ancillary information.

While produced as part of the Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP), these products should not be compared directly to past dates of 30-meter C-CAP to identify change, as there will be vast differences caused by the different methods and the classes mapped.

These data should be considered to be BETA-level or draft products. They are based on 1-meter land cover mapping that were entirely automated and the relationship of those data to existing wetlands data. As such, there may be issues that result from the different vintages of these products, as well as the errors included in each. While not perfect, the data should provide an example of what level of detail would be possible through such higher-resolution mapping.

These data are not jurisdictional or intended for use in litigation. NOAA does not assume liability for any damages or misrepresentations caused by inaccuracies in the data, or as a result of the data used on a particular system. NOAA makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.
