Land Use Coverages

In the MEC GIS, we are using land use data derived from satellites and arial photography to study the historic change in Land Use/Land Cover for the region and to model the possible impacts of climate change on these trends. In this study we will be comparing the change in percentages of land use classification by census tract over the past twenty years.
