AbstractNational Land Cover Database 2016 Shrubland Sagebrush Height Fractional Component, produced by MRLC (Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium). NLCD 2016 Shrub Component products characterize the percentage of each 30-meter pixel in the Western United States covered by shrub, herbaceous, bare ground, litter, sagebrush, big sagebrush and annual herbaceous, along with estimating shrub height and sagebrush height. These products have been produced by USGS in collaboration with the Bureau of Land Management. Component products are designed to be used individually or combined together to support a broad variety of applications.

Full metadata are included in the nlcdshs2.img.xml file located in the same path as the maintenance format file.

Known errors/qualifications1. Since new 2016 versions of NLCD products for all years have now been released, the decision was made to refrain from reprojecting this dataset into the County's standard NAD83 HARN projection. Since pixels were therefore not resampled, they do now represent the exact area on the ground that the original satellite sensor collected.
