No Discharge Areas for Marine Vessel Waste in New York and New Jersey 
2. MRLC National Land Cover Data Set
   Data Set Details
National Land cover data coverage jointly produced by USGS and EPA. Mapped using general land cover classes. For example, forest is classified as either, deciduous, evergreen or mixed. Land-cover classification was based on MRLC's Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) satellite data archive and a host of ancillary sources. Once completed, NLCD will be the first national land-cover dataset produced since the early 1970s, effectively replacing the land-cover data known to many as LUDA or GIRAS. Available data have been used for many environmental applications, including land-use planning, hydrological analyses, habitat assessments, as well as many others. Assessments of the accuracy of the data are undertaken after completion of large regions. Data for New York State are complete and available for download.
