Land Change in Loudon County

Created in my GIS class, the landcover change of Loudon County shows the NLCD Raster data of forest landcover changed to urban landcover over a decade. The map represents the rapid urbanization of Northern Virginia displaying exponential population growth. The workflow was developed by inserting two different periods of NLCD data into a raster calculation and finding the difference. Apply the DEM to get the accurate acres of the affected changes in land cover.
