ABSTRACT: Current, accurate land cover and change information is a common foundational data set that can be used to address a wide range of management issues, from flood risk and natural infrastructure to policy evaluation and land use planning. Knowing what exists on the ground gives planners more information, and the better that data, the better our understanding. For almost two decades, NOAA?s Office for Coastal Management has been producing standardized, 30 meter resolution land cover and change information for the coastal United States through its Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP). More recently, NOAA has been working to establish an operational higher resolution land cover product line, bringing the national C-CAP framework to the local level and allowing for more site-specific, local applications through the production of higher resolution (1 meter) land cover data. This product is not yet publically available everywhere, so NOAA is concurrently developing a hybrid (10 meter) land cover product that leverages the detail of the 1 meter, automated products but at a scale where errors from those products won?t impact their use. This presentation will highlight the methods of recent data development efforts, showcase recently released products in Massachusetts, discuss progress in Connecticut and Rhode Island, and lay out the vision for ongoing efforts to expand both high resolution and hybrid data products throughout New England.
