The Land Image Analyst (LIA) software package was developed to better address the need for specialized GIS tools to improve the accuracy of land cover mapping and land cover change monitoring with high resolution imagery. It is designed to serve expert and non-expert GIS users with easy to use, intuitive GIS tools. 

LIA is distributed at no cost to facilitate high-resolution land cover mapping, change analysis, and reporting across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

LIA is developed by GDA Corp, USGS and USFS.
