2006 Land Cover/Land Use Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge

Metadata Updated: December 12, 2017

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) - Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) has produced a high-resolution land cover/land use (LCU) spatial database of Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge (NSNWR). The LCU data were interpreted from 2006 color-infrared (CIR) aerial photographs collected on August 15th at a scale of 1:10,000. Vegetation types were classified with refuge-derived classes that best described current vegetation in an dynamic ecosystem (primarily agricultural fields being converted back to prairie). The photos were interpreted using a minimum mapping unit of 1-hectare and a 10% minimum vegetation cover. The photos were interpreted to delineate land cover/land use, percent vegetation cover, and tree height. The geographic extent of the NSNWR LCU database encompasses 10,436 acres of cool and warm season grasses, oak savannah, volunteer forests, pasture, and agriculture in Jasper County, Iowa.
