I am looking for land use data (not land cover), preferably in a raster format with at least 100m resolution or higher for California for the year 2018. Are there such data?

  • Can you clarify what you mean by "land use" - what sort of categories are you interested in? Would something like this be suitable? Note there is a link to an updated version of the downloader.

  • By land use I mean for example categories such as residential, factories, businesses etc. The link you provided I think shows land cover.

  • The land use you describe cannot be remotely sensed, unlike land cover which at least can distinguish between built area, crops, trees, etc. You may struggle to find a product at that resolution that splits "built area" into more specific categories.

    There is such a product for India (resourcewatch.org/data/explore/…). But I guess you are right, I couldn't find for USA and I am looking for several days now.
