The National Park Service (NPS), in conjunction with the Biological Resources Division (BRD) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), has implemented a program to "develop a uniform hierarchical vegetation methodology" at a national level. The program will also create a geographic information system (GIS) database for the parks under its management. The purpose of the data is to document the state of vegetation within the NPS service area during the 1990's, thereby providing a baseline study for further analysis at the Regional or Service-wide level. The vegetation at Devils Tower National Monument was mapped using 1:16,000 scale U.S. Forest Service Color Aerial Photography acquired July 29, 1993. The mapping classification...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Characterization Program initiated a project at Joshua Tree National Park (JOTR or Park) in 1996 to classify, describe, and map the vegetation communities of the Park. The project, including the final map, classification, and report, was completed in 2012. Initial mapping, photo-interpretation, and field work was conducted between 1996 and 2005. Final reports for these efforts were generated by 2005, including a map, ecological descriptions, classification, key, and photo-interpretation guide. Following this, a total of 1,313 accuracy assessments were conducted in 2007 and 2008, the results of which spurred additional field relev�s...
