DATA AVAILABILITY: Statewide 2016 Crop Mapping Data Now Available

From the Department of Water Resources:

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has released the 2016 Statewide Crop Mapping data. This new dataset represents the 2016 main season agricultural land use, wetlands, and urban boundaries for all 58 counties in California for the same time period. For many years, DWR has collected land use data at the county level at different times across the state. Land use and crop mapping information is essential for regional analysis and decision making, which has become increasingly important as DWR, other state and local agencies, and landowners seek to sustainably manage the state’s water resources.
