USDA NASS Cropland Data Layer

Category codes, class names, and colors. Consistent and standardized for all states and all years.

The 1997-2013 CDLs were recoded and re-released in January 2014 to better represent pasture and grass-related categories. A new category named Grass/Pasture (code 176) collapses the following historical CDL categories: Pasture/Grass (code 62), Grassland Herbaceous (code 171), and Pasture/Hay (code 181). This was done to eliminate confusion among these similar land cover types which were not always classified definitionally consistent from state to state or year to year and frequently had poor classification accuracies. This follows the recoding of the entire CDL archive in January 2012 to better align the historical CDLs with the current product. For a detailed list of the category name and code changes, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) section at <http://www.nass.usda.gov/Research_and_Science/Cropland/sarsfaqs2.php
