The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has created the first national map of land-cover vegetation. According to the agency, “The GAP [Gap Analysis Program] national land cover data … is the most detailed, consistent map of vegetative associations ever available for the United States and will help facilitate the planning and management of biological diversity on a regional and national scale.” To access the map, visit http://www.gap.uidaho.edu/landcoverviewer.html.
