Land Use and Land Cover

This dataset was created by combining reclassified National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) data, the National Park Service's Cape Cod National Seashore data layer, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Wildlife Refuges dataset. CZM grouped the C-CAP data into three classes (from more to less developed): high and medium intensity developed; low intensity developed, open spaces developed, cultivated land, and pasture/hay; and all other land use and land cover classes. The Cape Cod National Seashore and National Wildlife Refuges were overlaid on the reclassified C-CAP data as the least developed land cover class, and these four classes were displayed. The data were clipped to within a half mile of the coast.
