coatal Texas marsh survey points 2011

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

This data set contains vector point information. The original data set was collected through Texas A&M University-Kingsville a helicopter survey was flown October 2-3rd of 2011 by Dr. Jenneke Visser (University of Louisiana at Lafayette) and Michael Mitchell. Data from this survey was used to produce this point file. Each feature includes the vegetation type at the point as well as the class used when classifying. Each feature is labeled either reference or accuracy assessment based on what it was used for during analysis. Flight was along north/south transects spaced 2000 meters apart from the Corpus Christi Bay to the Sabine River. Vegetative data was obtained at pre-determined stations spaced at 1500 meters along each transect. The stations were located using a Global Positioning System (GPS) and a computer running ArcGIS. This information was recorded manually onto field tally sheets and later this information was entered into a Microsoft Excel database, which was later imported into ArcGIS.
