We developed a vegetation classification and high-resolution vegetation map for Petroglyph National Monument, New Mexico, as part of the USGS Vegetation Characterization Program, a cooperative effort by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service Inventory & Monitoring - Vegetation Mapping Program to classify, describe, and map vegetation communities in more than 280 national park units across the United States. The classification and map follow the guidelines and requirements of the national program, and are based on data collected from 499 field plots between 2007 and 2011 plus 469 independent survey points to assess the accuracy of the map and completeness of the classification.

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....

A vegetation map of Bandelier National Monument. This map is based on natural color orthophotography acquired in 2004 with a spatial resolution of 1 meter, displayed at 1:24,000 scale. Map units were delineated using aerial photo interpretation and image analysis based on 729 field survey points collected between 2003 and 2006. Final map compiled in ArcGIS Version 9.3, January, 2010. For details see Muldavin, E., A. Kennedy, C. Jackson, T. Neville, P. Neville, K. Schulz, and M. Reid. 2010. A Vegetation Classification and Map Report: Bandelier National Monument. Natural Resource Technical Report NPS/SCPN/NRTR-2010/00X, National Park Service, Fort Collins, Colorado.

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Buffalo National River (BUFF) was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The BUFF administrative boundary covers an area of nearly 38,000 ha. 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 Standard (NVCS) Version 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 October of 2006 and extensive field...

We developed a vegetation classification and high-resolution vegetation map for El Malpais National Monument, New Mexico, as part of the USGS Vegetation Characterization Program, a cooperative effort by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service Inventory & Monitoring - Vegetation Mapping Program to classify, describe, and map vegetation communities in more than 280 national park units across the United States. The classification and map follow the guidelines and requirements of the national program, and were based on data collected from 476 field plots between 2006 and 2009. Based on the field sampling, we identified 50 plant associations following the guidelines of the National Vegetation...

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (PIRO) was created by the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The PIRO covers an area of approximately 36,046 ha (89,072 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 2005 and extensive field surveys....

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway (SACN) was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The SACN administrative boundary covers an area of nearly 39,500 ha. The project boundary for the SACN vegetation mapping project covers an areas of just over 68,200 ha with the approximate 300 m buffer. 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 Standard (NVCS) Version 2. Physiognomic information was also recorded, including height (woody vegetation), canopy density,...

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (SLBE) was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The SLBE covers an area of over 24,000 ha (59,305 acres) and over 28,000 ha (69,190 acres) with the ~400 m surface water jurisdiction into Lake Michigan included. 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 Standard (NVCS) Version 2. Physiognomic information was also recorded, including height (woody vegetation), canopy density, and coverage patterns. The vegetation...

Vegetation map of Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. A consistent, ecologically based vegetation classification forms the foundation for the development of an information-rich vegetation map. Vegetation classifications are ground-based descriptions of vegetation patterns that take into account floristic composition and abundance, site characteristics, and ecological dynamics. Accordingly, for SAPU, we used field sampling and analysis to develop a hierarchical classification following the National Vegetation Classification Standard (FGDC 1997 and; 2008).

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for for the Oregon Caves National Monument (ORCA) and proposed expansion area vegetation mapping and inventory project was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The project area covers over 1820 ha (4499 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 Standard (NVCS) Version 2. The associations present in each map unit are also coded into the database. Vegetation plot sampling was conducted to describe the associations and to develop the map classification...

The geographic information system (GIS) format spatial data set of vegetation for Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CUVA) was created for the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Inventory Program (VIP). The CUVA administrative boundary covers an area of nearly 13,000 ha. 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 Standard (NVCS) Version 2. Physiognomic information was also recorded, including height (woody vegetation), canopy density, and coverage patterns. The vegetation data set was developed by interpreting aerial imagery collected in October of 2010 and extensive...
