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.

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.

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...

Plant Association Groups in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. This grid is created from a Potential Natural Vegetation modeling process that utilizes digital elevation data, climate data and other factors which can include fog, site moisture, soil, or geology.

The concept of potential natural vegetation (PNV), the plant community reflecting the environmental capability of a land area, has proven vital to land management over the past 30 years. Rigorous, consistent, validated potential vegetation mapping, however, has remained a persistent need for land management agencies. The development of this dataset represents a new way to model and map PNV to help fulfill those requirements.
