• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Fort Sumter 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, accuracy assessment (AA) sites, project boundary extent, and aerial photographic centers. The feature class layer for the FOSU vegetation map provides 43 polygons of detailed attribute data covering 137.6 hectares (340 ac), with an average polygon size of 3.20 hectares (7.93 ac). Of the area mapped, 10 polygons (23.3% of all polygons) represent natural/semi-natural vegetation types in the NVCS, encompassing 17.0 hectares (42.1 ac, 12.4%) of the total map extent.
