Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Appomattox Court House National Historical Park

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

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 vegetation map of Appomattox Court House National Historical Park was created following the USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program protocols. Vegetation map classes were crosswalked to the Natural Communities of Virginia and to the USNVC in order to provide a regional and global context for the park’s vegetation. All vegetation polygons on the map were surveyed either as part of the initial mapping effort or during accuracy assessment and their classification verified on the ground. One hundred and eighty-seven randomly selected accuracy assessment sampling points were collected throughout the park and used to assess the thematic accuracy of the map.
