The Web-Enabled Landsat Data (WELD) 5-year Land Cover Land Use Change (LCLUC) is a composite of 30 m land use land change product for the contiguous United States (CONUS) generated from 5 years of consecutive growing season WELD inputs from April 15, 2006, to November 17, 2010. WELD LCLUC is offered in HDF format. This product includes the following bands: tree cover, bare ground, water surface, snow and ice, and number of good acquisitions which are composited over the 5-year period. The WELD project is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and is a collaboration between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center and South Dakota State University, Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence (GSCE). The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) is responsible for archiving and distributing NASA WELD, which includes the WELD LCLUC product.
