Summary

The Mojave Plots Points data are 1,219 plot locations in the Central Mojave Desert where field data were recorded and repeat photographs were taken from 1997-1999 to provide context for the classification of the Central Mojave Desert into various vegetation classes. The 1,219 plot locations in the plots points shapefile (plots_points.shp) are each assigned a unique identifier called the FinalPlotCode. The FinalPlotCode can be used to match the shapefile points to the Mojave Field Data. The attached CSV file (Mojave_Images_Crosswalk.csv) can be used to relate the FinalPlotCodes to the associated repeat photographs that are attached as zipped TIFF images to the ScienceBase page. There are 1,695 total repeat photographs available that [...]

Purpose

The plots points locations show the geographic spread of field data and repeat photographs collected to provide context to classify the Central Mojave Desert into vegetation classes. The purpose of the Central Mojave Desert Vegetation Mapping Project was to create a vegetation map of a portion of the Mojave Desert using the standards of the National Vegetation Classification System, as they existed at the time of the project.
