• Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Pipestone National Monument

    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.

    The mapping component was produced by identifying land cover on air photos and hand digitizing on-screen. Heads-up digitizing was accomplished at a display scale of not more than 1:1,000 against a back-drop of air photos. Imagery was the most recent available from the National Agriculture Imagery Program. This included 2010 leaf-on true color and 2006 leaf-on color infrared images. The historic black and white photos from 1938 and 1968 showed the location of former croplands that have since been restored to tallgrass prairie, plus the location of former roads that have been removed and restored to native grasses. Former roads were avoided as potential sample plot locations.
