• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Minidoka 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.

    A three-year program was initiated to complete the task of classifying and mapping the vegetation at HAFO; the results of the HAFO project are being used to develop this volunteer project for MIIN. Phase One which was directed by HAFO and network staff in conjunction with NatureServe developed a vegetation classification using the National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS). Phase Two, directed by Northwest Management, Inc.’s (NMI) GIS Laboratory and Cogan Technology, Incorporated (CTI) produced a digital vegetation map for HAFO. To classify the HAFO vegetation, 85 representative plots located throughout the monument were sampled during the summer of 2006. Analysis of the plot data by the Idaho Conservation Data Center (ICDC) in the winter of 2006-2007 produced 34 distinct plant associations.
