Description
  • Abstract

    This dataset contains measures of land cover (e.g., low-, medium-, or high-density development, forest, wetland, open water) derived from the National Land Cover Database (NLCD) and aggregated by United States ZIP code tabulation area (ZCTA). Land cover is measured both in total square meters and as a proportion of all land within the ZCTA.
