Importance/Issues

Paragraph(s) explaining the importance of this protocol for helping park staff manage MOJN parks.


Monitoring Objectives

  • What are the long-term trends in land cover distribution within and adjacent to the park, (i.e., how has land cover changed)?

  • What are the patterns of relevant land cover types within and adjacent to the park (e.g., what are average patch sizes, densities, edge/core areas, inter-patch distances, etc.)?

  • What are the appropriate temporal and spatial (grain size and map extent) resolutions for mapping and analyzing land cover in and adjacent to the parks?

  • Are road densities adjacent to MOJN parks increasing?
