2011 National Land Cover Now Available on ASDI

The Arkansas GIS Office has added the 2011 National Land Cover Database to the Arkansas Spatial Data Infrastructure (ASDI). This dataset was created through a cooperative project conducted by the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium. The MRLC Consortium is a partnership of Federal agencies (www.mrlc.gov), consisting of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Forest Service (USDA-FS), the National Park Service (NPS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). This dataset was last revised in 2014.

This dataset can be downloaded directly from the ASDI repository at http://geostor-imagery.geostor.org.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html?prefix=State/USGS/NLCD/2011

Additionally, the data can be consumed via an image service at http://gis.arkansas.gov/arcgis/rest/services/ImageServices/NLCD_30M_2011/ImageServer
