Landcover Classification as determined by NOAA Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) | Description Source: NOAA Office for Coastal Management High-Resolution Land Cover Project

Allowed Values: 1 Unclassified: This class contains no data due to cloud conditions or data voids. | 2 Impervious Surfaces: Anthropogenic features such as buildings, parking lots and roads developed from asphalt, concrete or other constructed surfaces which do not allow infiltration from precipitation. | 5 Open Spaces Developed: Includes areas with a mixture of some constructed materials, but mostly vegetation in the form of lawn grasses. Impervious surfaces account for less than 20 percent of total cover. These areas most commonly include large-lot single-family housing units, parks, golf courses, and vegetation planted in developed settings for recreation, erosion control, or aesthetic purposes. | 6 Cultivated Land: Includes herbaceous (cropland) and woody (e.g., orchards, nurseries, and vineyards) cultivated lands. | 7 Pasture/Hay: characterized by grasses, legumes or grass-legumes mixtures planted for livestock grazing or the production of sees or hay crops. | 8 Grassland: Dominated by naturally occurring grasses and non-grasses (forbs) that are not fertilized, cut, tilled, or planted regularly. | 9 Deciduous Forest: Includes areas dominated by single stemmed, woody vegetation un-branched 0.6 to 1 meter (2 to 3 feet) above the ground and having a height greater than 5 meters (20 feet). | 10 Evergreen Forest: Includes areas in which more than 67 percent of the trees remain green throughout the year. Both coniferous and broad-leaved evergreens (greater than 5 meters) are included in this category. | 11 Mixed Forest: Contains all forested areas in which both evergreen and deciduous trees (greater than 5 meters) are growing and neither predominate. | 12 Scrub/Shrub: Areas dominated by woody vegetation less than 5 meters in height. This class includes true shrubs, young trees, and trees or shrubs that are small or stunted because of environmental conditions. | 13 Palustrine Forested Wetland: Includes all non-tidal wetlands dominated by woody vegetation greater than or equal to 5 meters in height, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas in which salinity due to ocean-derived salts is below 0.5 parts per thousand (ppt). | 14 Palustrine Scrub/Shrub Wetland: Includes all non-tidal wetlands dominated by woody vegetation less than or equal to 5 meters in height, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas in which salinity due to ocean-derived salts is below 0.5 ppt. | 15 Palustrine Emergent Wetland: Includes all non-tidal wetlands dominated by trees, shrubs, persistent emergents, emergent mosses, or lichens, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas in which salinity due to ocean- derived salts is below 0.5 ppt. | 16 Estuarine Forest Wetland: Includes all tidal wetlands dominated by woody vegetation greater than or equal to 5 meters in height, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas in which salinity due to ocean-derived salts is above 0.5 parts per thousand (ppt). | 17 Estuarine Scrub/Shrub Wetland: Includes all tidal wetlands dominated by woody vegetation less than 5 meters in height, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas in which salinity due to ocean-derived salts is above 0.5 ppt. | 18 Estuarine Emergent: Characterized by erect, rooted, herbaceous hydrophytes (excluding mosses and lichens) that are present for most of the growing season in most years. Perennial plants usually dominate these wetlands. All water regimes are included except those that are sub-tidal and irregularly exposed. | 19 Unconsolidated Shore: Characterized by substrates lacking vegetation except for pioneering plants that become established during brief periods when growing conditions are favorable. Erosion and deposition by waves and currents produce a number of landforms, such as beaches, bars, and flats, all of which are included in this class. | 20 Bare Land: Composed of bare soil, rock, sand, silt, gravel, or other earthen material with little or no vegetation. | 21 Water: Includes all areas of open water with less than 30 percent c
