• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site

    Metadata Updated: March 24, 2022

    The files linked to this reference are the geospatial data created as part of the completion of the baseline vegetation inventory project for the NPS park unit. Current format is ArcGIS file geodatabase but older formats may exist as shapefiles.

    ecologists used field data (plot data, observation points, photographs, and field notes) and digital aerial imagery (NAIP 2005) to map draft vegetation polygons for BEOL within an ESRI personal geodatabase. In most cases, the map units are equivalent to vegetation associations, although one is represented at the alliance level. Table relationships were used to create a drop-down list of plant associations and map unit categories in the attribute table to ensure consistent data entry. A CNHP GIS Specialist then cleaned the layer topology, removing overlaps, gaps, slivers, and any data inconsistencies. FGDC compliant metadata was created for the vegetation layers and the layers were exported from the geodatabase as ESRI shapefiles. The layers are all in the coordinate system UTM Zone 13, North American Datum 1983.
