Description: <a href = "https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7Bbe798475-6ba2-47a1-9a24-fd2fc637ce26%7D">Full Metadata</a> This EnviroAtlas dataset categorizes land cover into structural elements (e.g. core, edge, connector, etc.). It depicts core areas of natural land cover, core fragmentation, and patterns of connectivity among core patches. Water is treated as background in this dataset; waterbodies are separated from the natural land cover classes and included in the analysis with the developed land cover classes. 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).
