AKR Vegetation Inventory Resource Brief

The landcover inventory is an effort to classify, describe, and map vegetation communities within Alaska park units. Landcover projects compile existing data with field observations and produce data structures of vegetation maps, field observations, and digital photos compatible within a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. Digital image processing of satellite imagery has primarily been used to classify vegetation in Alaska parks. However, photo interpretation is also used. The primary objective of the landcover inventory is to produce high-quality, standardized maps, and associated data sets of vegetation occurring within the region’s sixteen parks.

Status - 99% Complete – Landcover Inventories have been completed for approximately 54.6 million acres (˜99%) of Alaska parklands, and have been delivered to all but three of the sixteen parks in Alaska.

More information can also be found on the Service-wide National Park Service Vegetation Inventory Webpage.
