Major land uses in the United States

Metadata Updated: June 8, 2018

This is a polygon coverage of major land uses in the United States. The source of the coverage is the map of major land uses in the National Atlas, pages 158-159, which was adapted from U.S. Department of Agriculture, "Major Land Uses in the United States," by Francis J. Marschner, revised by James R. Anderson, 1967.

Access Constraints Use Constraints: The scale of the data (1:7,500,000) limits its use to broad overviews of land use. Several areas on the scanned map did not register properly with existing 1:2,000,000 base maps. The areas are southwest New Mexico to southwest California and the northwest corner of Maine. The original ticks appear to be located properly. The discrepancy might be due to different source maps or error in transforming the scanned copy., Access Constraints: none
