Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) has produced the Vegetation Spatial Database Coverage (vegetation map) for the Acadia National Park Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program (VMP). The vegetation map is of Acadia National Park (NP) and extended environs, providing 99,693 hectares (246,347 acres) of map data. Of this coverage, 52,872 hectares (130,650 acres) is non-vegetated ocean, bay, and estuary (53% of coverage). Acadia NP comprises 19,276 hectares (47,633 acres) of the total data coverage area (19%, 40% not counting ocean and estuary data). Over 7,120 polygons make up the coverage, each with map class description and, for vegetation classes, physiognomic [...]

Purpose

The Vegetation Spatial Database Coverage (vegetation map) was produced for the Acadia National Park Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program. The focus of this metadata report centers on the vegetation map itself and not necessarily on vegetation classification or accuracy assessment. Although references are made to classification and accuracy assessment, their full documentation is found in separate metadata reports and in the Project?s technical report.
