The 2001 Southern Appalachians Land Cover file was originally developed by Liz Kramer at the NARSAL lab at the University of Georgia as a part of the National Land Cover Dataset for 2001. This file has been spatially adjusted by Jeff Hepinstall-Cymerman to match the 1986, 1991, and 1996 landcover datasets of the Southern Appalachian Mountains developed by Barrie Collins and Jeff Fivet for the Coweeta Long Term Ecological Research Program.
