• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Fort Necessity National Battlefield

    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.

    Following the vegetation data analysis, the formation-level vegetation map was further edited and refined to develop an association-level vegetation map. Using ArcView 3.2, polygon boundaries were revised onscreen based on the plot data and additional field observations. Each polygon was assigned one of eight vegetation association types based on plot data, field observations, aerial photography signatures, and topographic maps. An aerial photograph interpretation key for the vegetation associations was created. However, several associations could not be distinguished reliably by aerial photography signatures alone. Plot data, field observations, and topographic maps were relied upon in these circumstances to inform the polygon delineation and association name assignments. After the vegetation association map was completed, the thematic accuracy of this map was assessed.
