Summary

The LCMAP Reference Data Product was utilized for evaluation and validation of the Land Change Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection (LCMAP) land cover and land cover change products. The LCMAP Reference Data Product includes the collection of an independent dataset of 25,000 randomly-distributed 30-meter by 30-meter plots across the conterminous United States (CONUS). This dataset was collected via manual image interpretation to aid in validation of the land cover and land cover change products as well as area estimates. The LCMAP Reference Data Product collected variables related to primary and secondary land use, primary and secondary land cover(s), change processes, and other ancillary variables annually across CONUS from 1984-2018.

Purpose

Dataset displays the location of the 25,000 30-meter by 30-meter pixels used as reference data plots for validation of the Land Change Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection (LCMAP) Version 1 Science Products and the associated annual land cover, land use, and land change attributes collected via manual interpretation.
