The NEMO project translates and simplifies data on 24 different land cover categories into four (4) broad classes that are easy to understand and associate with your own community.
These land cover categories are Forested/Wetlands, Open Space/Agricultural, Residential, and Commercial/Industrial, which are both labeled Developed here.
As you can see, the developed areas are concentrated around the beaches and the highway corridors.
Each category contributes differently to polluted runoff.
