Vegetation Mapping

Early in the network planning process, the SCPN identified vegetation maps as integral natural resource information and determined that accurate and up-to-date maps of the vegetation types of parks and monuments would be critical as the network develops and implements monitoring in park units. Vegetation maps will document baseline information about vegetation communities in parks, which will be important for managing wildlife habitat, plant and animal species of concern, fire, and other resources.

Vegetation mapping of national parks is being accomplished by the National Park Service in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as well as Nature Serve, the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), and other agencies and private entities. See the USGS Vegetation Characterization Program for additional information.

Or, you can view the map using the NPS Vegetation Inventory Map Viewer, which includes all completed vegetation inventory projects.
