Land Use Strata - Selected States

dataset
posted on 2023-11-30, 08:09 authored by USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) area sampling frame is a delineation of all parcels of land for the purpose of later sampling the parcels. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into homogenous land use areas (strata) based on percent cultivated. The strata are typically defined as low, medium or high percent cultivated, non-agricultural land, urban use, agri-urban, or water. The boundaries of the strata usually follow identifiable features such as roads, railroads and waterways. The strata boundaries do not coincide with any political boundaries, with the exception of state boundaries. This site provides links to download ESRI shape and symbology layer files, as well as low resolution JPEG or higher resolution PDF images for each state. Also included in the FAQ are how to cite the data set, time period, how geographic features are represented and described, originators and contributors, contacts to address questions about the data, how the data set was created (previous works, e.g. USGS topographic quadrangles, US Census Bureau, space imagery, etc.), data generation-, processing-, and modification methods, and similar or related data. Applicable legal restrictions on access or use of the data and disclaimers are provided.

Intended use

These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the state level. The data should be displayed and analyzed at a scale of 1:100,000 or smaller.

Use limitations

There are known gaps and overlaps. This data set includes the area in square miles and number of acres for each strata. Boundaries may not be coincident with strata boundaries of adjacent states.
