Short description:
Cultivated Areas, 2004 (1:100,000) - Shows percentage of cultivated land in homogeneous land-use areas. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) area sampling frame is a delineation of all parcels of land for the purpose of later sampling the parcels. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into homogenous land use areas (strata) based on percent cultivated. The strata are typically defined as low, medium, or high percent cultivated, nonagricultural land, urban use, agri-urban, or water. Derived from National Agricultural Statistics Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. This layer is exactly the same as a shapefile named STRATA_A_IN.SHP and titled 'Stratification of Indiana 2004' that was acquired from the NASS, USDA. Intended for geographic display and analysis at the state level.
