Title

Minnesota Navigator: Enhanced 30-meter Land Use/Land Cover

Abstract

This enhanced 30-meter statewide Land Use/Cover file was produced as a navigation and reference tool for the LMIC EPPL Team's Environmental Atlas and Atlas GDS desktop GIS products. It is based upon the United States Geological Survey's 1992 National Land Cover Data (NLCD), with enhancements made to that data set from several of Minnesota's 1990's-vintage Land Use/Cover files. Enhancements involved substituting data from one of the Minnesota Land Use/Cover data sets when the decision rules specific to the NLCD under-represented land cover or use categories that were thought to be important for visual navigation through the state. Updates were made to improve the representation of wetlands, spruce bogs, lakeshore development, and rural farmsteads.
