California - Land Cover Map
"Land Cover" maps combine shaded relief with colors representing forests, farmland, wetlands, built-up areas, and so on. Colors show what's on the ground. These maps are particularly effective in showing geographic characteristics that may not appear at all in the classic "Elevation Tint" treatment. Good examples are the wetlands of Northern Minnesota and Northern Michigan or the forest lands of East Texas.
