Restoration of the 1936 Statewide Forest Survey of Minnesota

    Over 300 stand and stock tables and summary of volume tables for Minnesota were restored from the first FIA Lake States forest survey conducted between 1930 and 1938. The level of detail of the data varied, but included area of forest cover types and stand size classes, and number of trees and volumes per acre by individual species. The data was presented in an Access database with a series of tables and queries. Definitions and further explanations about the restored historic data can be found in Staff Paper Series No. 241, Department of Forest Resources, University of Minnesota.

    National Land Cover Database 2011 (NLCD 2011)

      National Land Cover Database 2011 (NLCD 2011) is the most recent national land cover product created by the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium, providing the capability to assess national land cover changes and trends across the United States from 2001 to 2011 at a spatial resolution of 30 meters, based primarily on a decision-tree classification of circa 2011 Landsat satellite data.
