Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Little Bighorn National Monument

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.

After the field mapping crew finished the initial map unit polygon census, data was entered into a geodatabase. This data was quality checked and the final version was passed to WSAL. Polygons in the initial segmentation that were modified by crews as noted on the hardcopy maps supplied by the field crew were edited directly in the geodatabase. Any new map unit polygons created had a letter added to their original polygon-id field. A crosswalk table was created that linked the initial field key types to the USNVC series of hierarchical classifications and the field comments for each type. These classification attributes were then joined to the initial and final map units in the geodatabase.
