• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Fort Frederica National Monument

    Metadata Updated: March 17, 2021

    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 geodatabase containing various feature-class layers and tables show the locations of vegetation types and general land cover (vegetation map), vegetation plot samples, AA sites, project boundary extent, and aerial photographic centers. The feature-class layer for the FOFR vegetation map provides 50 polygons of detailed attribute data covering 192 ha, with an average polygon size of 8.9 ha. Of the area mapped, 33 polygons (66%) represent natural vegetation types in the NVCS, encompassing 117 ha (61% of the total map extent). A total of 12 map classes were developed to map the vegetation and general land cover of FOFR and surroundings, including the following: seven map classes representing natural vegetation at the association level in the National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS), one map class representing cultural vegetation (e.g., developed) in the NVCS, and four map classes representing non-vegetated units (e.g., open water bodies, buildings, roads, etc.). Features were interpreted using 1:12,000 scale digital color-infrared aerial photography (flown 07 May 2011) through heads-up-digitizing in ArcGIS (Version 10, © 2010 Environmental Systems Research Institute, Redlands, California). Polygons were mapped to a 0.5-ha minimum mapping unit (MMU).
