Communities need to understand how land cover affects water quality. This webinar provides information about NOAA’s coastal land cover data (also known as “C-CAP data”). Several tools make these data easier to use, including the Land Cover Atlas, an online viewer used to analyze land cover changes by county or watershed. Also covered: a step-by-step guidance document that helps users understand key water quality indicators.
- Review maps of land cover and change in the coastal U.S.
- Analyze change statistics and maps for a county or watershed of interest
- Identify sensitive watersheds that may be impacted by runoff
- Discover additional resources that can help users assess water quality
