FIA Landcover County Estimates - 2015 (Feature Layer)

dataset
posted on 2024-06-05, 12:42 authored by U.S. Forest Service
This feature class represents forest area estimates (and percent sampling error) by county for the year 2015. The data was generated from the Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA) using the EVALIDator web tool (https://apps.fs.usda.gov/Evalidator/evalidator.jsp). The areas were calculated within county limits using the US Census Bureau's county spatial data (https://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/data/cbf/cbf_counties.html). Features and attributes of the county layer were adapted to match attributes within the FIA database (FIADB) and features have been generalized by removing vertices to enhance performance. Future iterations of this dataset will be produced using refined methods and higher resolution spatial data. Metadata and Downloads
