The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Apostle Islands National Lakeshore (APIS) was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The APIS covers an area of approximately 28,972 ha (71,591 acres). The map classification scheme used to create the vegetation data set is designed to represent local vegetation types at the finest level possible using the National Vegetation Classification (NVC) Standard (Vr 2). Physiognomic information was also recorded, including height (woody vegetation), canopy density, and coverage patterns. The vegetation data set was developed by interpreting aerial photographs collected in 2004 and extensive field surveys....

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Moores Creek National Battlefield (MOCR) was created by the National Park Service (NPS) Southeast Coast Inventory and Monitoring Network (SECN). The MOCR covers an area of approximately 70 ha (173 acres). The map classification scheme used to create the vegetation data set is designed to represent local plant communities at the finest level possible using the National Vegetation Classification System. The vegetation data set was developed by interpreting aerial photographs collected in 2009 and extensive field surveys. Individuals who cooperated in this project include: the Southeast Regional Office of NatureServe and the NPS SECN....

This polygon feature class represents vegetation communities mapped at Canyonlands National Park. The polygons were generated using guidelines set by the Standardized National Vegetation Classification System (October 1995). A combination of methods were used to map Canyonlands. The USGS used e-Cognition software to create segments. The segments created were then looked at and extensively edited by the vegetation mappers. Some mapping was done on screen, using the 2002 imagery. Hard copy 9X9 photography was used for photo interpretation. Traditional image interpretation cues were used to develop the polygons, such as shape, size, pattern, tone, texture, color, and shadow. Additional data layers were used in aiding...

Natural and semi-natural vegetation covers 4,209.6 acres (1,703.6 ha), or >98% of the park. Of that area, 76% is in woodland or forest and 23% is herbaceous vegetation. Two-thirds of the grasslands are mowed more than once annually and are dominated primarily by the non-native tall fescue (Schedonorusphoenix). Dry and typic upland oak-hickory woodland and forest together comprise 2,481 acres (1,004 ha), or 59% of the natural and semi-natural vegetation of the park.

To produce the digital map, a combination of 1:12,000-scale aerial infrared photographs acquired in October 2005, GPS referenced ground data and two reconnaissance field trips were used to interpret the complex patterns of vegetation and land-use. Ultimately, 19 map units were defined to describe all the land cover within the project boundary. This includes 13 that describe the vegetation. All of the interpreted and remotely sensed data were converted to Geographic Information System (GIS) databases using ArcGIS software. Draft maps were printed, field tested, reviewed and revised. During the summer of 2008 275 accuracy assessment (AA) data points were collected and used to determine the map's accuracy. After final...

This shapefile is an vegetation map of Richmond National Battlefield Park, Virginia. It was developed by The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, Division of Natural Heritage in cooperation with North Carolina State University's Center for Earth Observation for the Northeast Region of the National Park Service. The data was created following general guidelines set forth by the USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program. Map classes are crosswalked to the U.S. National Vegetation Classification (USNVC) or level II of the Andersons land use land cover classification system. Crosswalks to the USNVC were determined on September 27, 2007. The map is based on field work performed in the summer of 2002-2006 and...

Vegetation map of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area provides local park-specific names for vegetation types, as well as crosswalks to the National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS), including association, alliance and formation level attributes. Crosswalks to the NVCS were determined on 29 June 2006.

Vegetation at HUTR was mapped and classified by a combination of plot data, field visits and photo interpretation. Aerial photographs from September 14th, 2003 were used during the photo interpretation process. Field data used to aid in the assignment of map labels was collected in August of 2006. The protocols and standards used are those for small parks and are described in the NPS/BRD program documents (National Mapping Program Field Methods for Vegetation Mapping (1994a) for small parks (section 5.1). BOR was contracted by the Southern Colorado Plateau Network in 2005 to map approximately 1,639 acres (~ 663 ha) of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site and environs.Vegetation mapping for HUTR encompassed...

The vegetation spatial database coverage (vegetation map) is a product of the Effigy Mounds National Monument Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program (VMP). The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and the Minneapolis Office of NatureServe in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have completed mapping and classification of existing plant communities of Effigy Mounds National Monument (EFMO) and extended surroundings. Photointerpreters, ecologists, and botanists collaborated to describe National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS) plant communities (associations) and determine how best to map them using aerial photographs. --- Two...

Vegetation at CHCU was mapped and classified by a combination of existing plot data and data collected for the purposes of this project, several field visits and photo interpretation. The protocols and standards used are those for medium sized parks and are described in the NPS/CSS program documents (TNC and ESRI 1994a) (section 5.1). BOR was contracted by the Southern Colorado Plateau Network in 2005 to map approximately 18,800 ha (~46,500 acres) of Chaco Culture National Historical Park and environs. The vegetation map is a 1:24000 scale product.To effectively classify and map the wide range of vegetation at CHCU required a multi-year approach and consisted of several linked phases: (1) vegetation classification...

Most of WICR, including 1,836 acres (743 hectares), or 93%, is semi-natural, whereas 7% is developed or in croplands designed to enhance interpretation of the battlefield during the engagement. Grasslands, including periodically mowed or burned open areas, cover roughly half of WICR. Successional woodlands and forests cover the other half. Small glades, though they cover Lesquerellafiliformis; Annis et al. 2011). Open areas at WICR are variable across years due to periodic mowing or burning. After mowing or prescribed fire, areas show a grassland aspect for one season, and thereafter appear increasingly shrub-dominated as perennial shrubs overtop grasses. Open areas also vary across short spatial scales, which reflects...

This polygon feature class represents vegetation communities mapped at Capitol Reef National Park to an alliance or association level, depending on the photo signature. The polygons were generated using guidelines set by the Standardized National Vegetation Classification System (October 1995). Original lines were drawn on-screen using the DOQs collected in June of 2002 as a base map. Hard copy 9X9 photography was used for photo interpretation. Traditional image interpretation cues were used to develop the polygons, such as shape, size, pattern, tone, texture, color, and shadow. Additional data layers were used in aiding the interpretation, such as slope, hydrology, geography, and ground-collected vegetation information....
