• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Booker T. Washington National Monument

    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.

    A vegetation map of Booker T. Washington National Monument was created following the USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program protocols. These vegetation associations were crosswalked to the Natural Communities of Virginia and to the USNVC in order to provide a regional and global context for the park’s vegetation. A field key to the map classes and detailed descriptions for each map class were developed to assist with field recognition and classification. Additional products associated with this project include: leaf-on and leaf-off orthophoto mosaics, database of vegetation plot data, digital photos of vegetation associations, and spatial data files for the vegetation map and plot sample points with associated Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC)-compliant metadata.
