EnviroAtlas - 2011 Agricultural Land Cover on Steep Slopes for the Conterminous United States

This EnviroAtlas dataset represents the percentage land area that is classified as agricultural land cover that occurs on slopes above a given threshold for each 12-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC) in the conterminous United States.

Agricultural land cover is defined using the EnviroAtlas hybrid Cropland Data Layer (CDL) - 2011 National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD). Percentage slope values were derived from the 1 arc-second National Elevation Dataset (NED). This dataset was produced by the US EPA to support research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas. EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas) allows the user to interact with a web-based, easy-to-use, mapping application to view and analyze multiple ecosystem services for the contiguous United States. The dataset is available as downloadable data (https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/EnviroAtlas) or as an EnviroAtlas map service. Additional descriptive information about each attribute in this dataset can be found in its associated EnviroAtlas Fact Sheet (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas/enviroatlas-fact-sheets).
