Land Use/Land Cover

Publishing and Archiving

The dataset is published when significant edits to the data have been made (usually not more than once per year or two). This dataset has a broad array of users including federal, state, and local natural resource managers; county and local land use planners, consultants, and place-based environmental groups; academic and agency researchers and analyst; recreationists; and K-12 educators, college and university faculty. 

A copy of the dataset is submitted to the Montana State Library archive at the end of each calendar year if the dataset was re-published since the last submission to the archive.
