Regional Land Use Land Cover Project

An example of land use land cover on a map

The Regional Land Use Land Cover Project is a pilot endeavor undertaken by DRCOG, the Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, and the Conservation Innovation Center.

During this pilot, 1,000 square miles of the Denver region will be classified using high-resolution imagery acquired as part of the 2018 Denver Regional Aerial Photography Project. Seven classes will be identified: structures, impervious surface, water, grassland/prairie, tree canopy, irrigated lands/turf, and barren/rock.

Results are expected to be available for download in the summer of 2019.
