Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Casa Grande National Monument

Metadata Updated: January 29, 2020

The files linked to this reference are the geospatial data created as part of the completion of the baseline vegetation inventory project for the NPS park unit. Current format is ArcGIS file geodatabase but older formats may exist as shapefiles.

Forty-two polygons were mapped within the project boundary: 27 at the main unit and 15 at the Adamsville proposed expansion area. In total, 15 distinct types were identified across the study area. Seven of these types are Anderson Land Use Classes or variations thereof; the others are natural vegetation classes following the NVCS. Map classes were described at the alliance or association level; where known, alliance descriptions also include recognized associations. Due to the small area involved in this project, and to its relatively simple floristic attributes, there is a one-to-one correspondence between the map classes presented here and the community types described. A total of 35 species were recorded during the sampling efforts. Alliances and associations marked with (P) are proposed, not yet accepted into the NVC. In addition, summarized local descriptions, with example satellite image/signatures and representative photos for each alliance or association, follow this section.
