ABSTRACT: Understanding current land cover patterns and past change trends is essential to comprehensive management, assessment, and future planning. For more than two decades, NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management has been producing consistent, accurate land cover and change information for the coastal U.S through its Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP), with the goal of continually updating these maps every 5 years. In recent years, NOAA has been working to establish an operational higher resolution land cover product line, bringing the national C-CAP framework to the local level and allowing for more site specific applications. This work has been possible because of the wealth of available imagery and lidar data, improved software and hardware capabilities, and artificial intelligence classification techniques. This talk will highlight the results of this work in the Northeast, with particular emphasis on products recently released for Massachusetts and Connecticut.
