Description: The Southern Region USDA Forest Service recently completed the Southern Appalachian Assessment (SAA). The Assessment is a broad scale interagency analysis and sharing of existing information relative to the natural and human resources of the region. The SAA encompasses over 36 million acres extending from Northern Virginia to Northern Alabama. It was clear early in the Assessment that a uniform land cover data layer would be required to support analysis and modeling.

Keywords: spatial data, spatial analyses, natural resources, environmental sciences, Southern Appalachian Assessment (SAA), uniform land cover data layer, analysis and modeling
