• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Roosevelt-Vanderbilt 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 map showing the locations of vegetation associations in the park was created, following the NVIP protocols. Digital geospatial databases were created for the ROVA project in its entirety. In early spring 2006, following the vegetation classification plot data analysis, the 2003 preliminary vegetation map of the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt NHS (excluding Roosevelt Farm and Forest), Val-Kill, and Vanderbilt Mansion NHS was edited and refined to produce a revised vegetation map prior to thematic accuracy assessment (AA). In addition, in early spring of 2008, the 2007 Roosevelt Farm and Forest preliminary vegetation map was edited and refined to produce a revised vegetation map prior to AA. Using ArcMap 9.2 (ESRI 1999-2006), both preliminary maps were revised by editing polygon boundaries on-screen based on the classification plot data, field observations, classification analyses, aerial photography signatures, and topographic maps.
