lulc: Land Use Land Cover (LULC) Data Frames

Description Format Details References


Datasets containing information on the land use and land cover (LULC) characteristics calculated at all LAGOSNE spatial classifications (see ?scales) from the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD).


Data frames with all or a subset of the following variables. Number of observations is equal to the number of zones in each spatial scale (see Details below). Wildcard options include the 9 LAGOSNE spatial scales (* = buffer100m, buffer500m, iws, hu12, hu8, hu4, edu, county, state), year of measurement (** = 1992, 2001, 2006, 2011), and unit of measurement in hectares or percent of zone area (*** = ha, pct unless noted otherwise). Each variable is available at each scale, year, and unit unless otherwise noted.


Original data sources and layers from which each metric was derived can be found in additional file 5 of Soranno et al. (2015).
