National Land Cover Data set 1992 (NLCD1992)

National Land Cover Dataset 1992 (NLCD1992) is a 21-class land cover classification scheme that has been applied consistently across the lower 48 United States at a spatial resolution of 30 meters. NLCD92 is based primarily on the unsupervised classification of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) circa 1990's satellite data. Other ancillary data sources used to generate these data included topography, census, and agricultural statistics, soil characteristics, and other types of land cover and wetland maps. NLCD1992 is the only NLCD dataset that can be downloaded by state and by user defined area from the MRLC Consortium Viewer.
