ABSTRACT: NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management (OCM) provides technical assistance, data, tools, and training to the coastal management community. Through its Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP), OCM has been producing moderate resolution (30 meter) land cover for almost two decades. During the 2016 NEARC conference, NOAA announced an ambitious new effort to establish an operational high resolution (1 meter) land cover product line. This presentation will describe techniques NOAA and its partners are using to develop detailed land cover maps across broadening geographies, and will discuss progress to date in New England and other regions. We will compare and contrast the high resolution products to the moderate resolution products and discuss how the two products relate to each other from development and usability perspectives. We will highlight other detailed classified data products like salt marsh data and describe how these techniques, combined with invaluable partner input, will guide our future high resolution land cover mapping efforts.
