• Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site

    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.

    Once the boundary was finalized copies of 2006 Quickbird Imagery were obtained from the PACN. This imagery was obtained as pan-sharpened, cloud-free, 4-band, 0.6-meter resolution digital ortho-photos that covered the entire island of Hawai‘i. The specific imagery tiles covering the PUHE project area were selected, clipped and mosaiced to provide the basemap for mapping purposes. In addition to the Quickbird imagery, 1-meter, 3-band (true color) 2002 Ikonos imagery was also obtained for PUHE, but due to cloud cover and ensuing changes at PUHE since 2002 this product was only used in an ancillary role.. By comparing the signatures on the imagery to field and ground data, 31 map units (14 vegetated, five geologic, and 12 land-use/land-cover) were developed and directly crosswalked or matched to their corresponding rUSNVC plant associations.
