US: EarthDefine has created a seamless 1 meter resolution tree cover dataset for California. The dataset updates its previous tree map for California using the newest 2014 National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) aerial imagery. EarthDefine's Tree Canopy data allows users to accurately measure and understand tree cover at regional and local levels, especially in mixed urban and agricultural landscapes. The tree map can help planners assess urban tree canopy for any city in the state and also support other applications like biomass estimation, wildfire risk monitoring, studying interactions between public health and tree cover, quantification of ecosystem services and improved modeling of stormwater flows.
