Summary

The Louisiana State Legislature created Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in order to conserve, restore, create and enhance Louisiana's coastal wetlands.

This data set includes mosaicked aerial photographs for the Delta Wide Crevasses (MR-09) project for 2001, 2002, 2007, 2012, and 2016. This data is used as a basemap land-water classification. It also serves as a visual tool for project managers to help them identify any obvious problems or land loss within their project [...]
