Allowed Values: 1 Unclassified: This class contains no data due to cloud conditions or data voids. | 2 Impervious: 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 Developed Open Space: Includes areas with a mixture of some constructed materials, but mostly vegetation in the form of lawn grasses. This subclass includes parks, lawns, athletic fields, golf courses, and natural grasses occurring around airports and industrial sites. Impervious surfaces account for less than 20 percent of total cover. | 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-legume mixtures planted for livestock grazing or the production of seed 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 unbranched 0.6 to 1 meter above the ground and having a height greater than 5 meters and cover more than 20% of land area. More than 75 percent of the tree species shed foliage simultaneous in response to seasonal change. | 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 are included in this category. Trees must be taller than 5 meters and more than 20% of the land cover. | 11 Mixed Forest: Contains all forested areas in which both evergreen and deciduous trees are growing and neither predominate. Trees must be taller than 5 meters and more than 20% of the land cover. | 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. Includes both evergreen and deciduous scrub. | 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 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 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 ppt. | 18 Estuarine Emergent Wetland: 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 subtidal 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 Bar
