• Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Sunset Crater Volcano 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.

    Four basic elements were used to create the SUCR vegetation map: 1) map class development, 2) aerial photography interpretation, 3) digital transfer, and 4) map validation. Following these steps, a formal accuracy assessment determined errors of omission and commission with the goal of achieving a minimum of 80% map accuracy. An ArcInfo GIS database was built for SUCR using in-house protocols for creating vegetation GIS databases. The protocols consist of a shell of Arc Macro Language (AML) scripts and menus that automate the transfer process and insure that all spatial and attribute data are consistent and stored properly. We modified the map classes as a result of field verification and used the modified classes in the final photointerpretation. The final map revision was completed in September 2002.
