Several state forestry agencies in the Project Area have requested statewide forest change datasets. While the Project Team is working to enable this functionality within the web applications (i.e., users select a state, analysis window, and data are analyzed and provided), this functionality does not currently exist. However, the Custom Request application can be used in conjunction with desktop GIS to assemble these data. Each state had specific requirements for the analyses conducted and as a result, these data products can vary across states.
The table below lists the statewide forest change products that have been generated to date with download links for the data in Esri Map Package (.mpk) and ZIP archived file format (.zip). Esri Map Packages are intended for ArcGIS Desktop users, while the ZIP archives contain the data for use in other desktop GIS software (e.g., QGIS, GRASS, Google Earth Pro, etc.).
