Presentation Form vector digital data
Abstract This dataset contains boundaries for land use and land cover polygons in New Mexico at a scale of 1:250,000. It is in a vector digital data structure. The source software was Optional DLG-3 and the conversion software was ARC/INFO 6.1.2. For documentation refer to USGS Data Users Guide 4, National Mapping Program, Technical Instructions, 1986, Reston, VA. These data are processed in 1:250,000 scale map units, therefore file size varies for each map unit. chaco Mesa was processed at 1:100,000 scale.
Purpose This dataset was created to digitally represent the areas of various land uses and land cover types in New Mexico. Examples of land uses are residential, industrial, transportation, cropland, and pasture. Examples of land cover are evergreen forest, lakes, wetlands, dry salt flats, and tundra. Intended use of data These data are typically used as base data for other coverages. They are also intended for use with remote sensor data.
