Land Use Layers (NLCD 2016) for 2D RAS

short url for this page: https://go.usa.gov/xpXbJ

These land use layers for each state are clipped from the National NLCD layer provided by
the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium (MRLC)  here. That layer, updated
to 2016, covers the entire continental US in the Albers projection. The following state
layers have been re-projected to UTM (feet) for the zones appropriate for each.

An ArcGIS Pro Layer file has been included. To open the land use layer in ArcGIS Pro
double-click the layer file. You can also load into RAS Mapper without going into GIS.
However, RAS does not recognize every file format. Included, in a tiff folder, is a copy
of the NLCD 2016 land use layer in tiff format. Use this file in RAS Mapper.

By the way, RAS can handle the entire state raster. Mapper automatically clips it to
the size of your project.
