Note: SEMCOG's 2008 Land Use data set represents land use only and not land cover. Due to this difference, change analysis using this data set and previous SEMCOG land use/land cover data sets in not possible. Noticeable differences in map appearance and classification acreage totals are the result of this land use data originating from digital parcel files assigned land use codes based on their assessed property class and the lack of any land cover data.
