Summary

Vegetation and water surface cover was mapped for the entire Colorado River bottomland within the project area (Utah/Colorado border to lower boundary of Canyonlands National Park) using high resolution photographs flown in September of 2010. Vegetation cover was mapped initially by the National Park Service and heavily edited for use in the project. Channel mapping was initially done by John Dohrenwend, with polygons heavily edited for use in the project. Cover was identified as most prominent (Dominant), next most prominent (Common), next most prominent (Present) and last most prominent (also Present). Codes for cover types and cover type descriptions are available within the dataset and metadata.
