About the Land Cover Analysis Tool (LCAT)
In 2006, the Eastern Geographic Science Center began a joint project
to develop a custom application to provide enhanced public access to
USGS’s National Land Cover Database (NLCD). The resulting Land Cover
Analysis Tool (LCAT) allows users to quickly locate, display, and
download data from the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) , including
the recently developed NLCD Change Product, which displays changes in
land cover between 1992 and 2001.
