• Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Biscayne National Park

    Metadata Updated: March 17, 2021

    This reference contains the imagery data used in the completion of the baseline vegetation inventory project for the NPS park unit. Orthophotos, raw imagery, and scanned aerial photos are common files held here.

    Biscayne National Park’s 3,096 hectares of terrestrial vegetation, including the wetlands along the western shore of Biscayne Bay, mangrove islands in the bay, and islands that parallel the mainland, were mapped with a vector-based approach using photo-interpretation of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) 2005 aerial imagery (30cm, 5-band) as well as 2002 Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data (mainland only). An additional 429 hectares were mapped in areas immediately adjacent to the park boundary. The map was made in UTM, NAD 83, Zone 17N coordinates with a minimum mapping unit of 400m2 with notable smaller objects mapped at the photo-interpreter’s discretion.
