Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Cumberland Island National Seashore

Metadata Updated: November 12, 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.

A geodatabase containing various feature class layers and tables was constructed to show the locations of vegetation types and general land cover (vegetation map), vegetation plot samples, AA sites, project boundary extent, and aerial photographic centers. The feature class layer for the CUIS vegetation map provides 1,005 polygons of detailed attribute data covering 15,163.4 hectares, with an average polygon size of 144.7 hectares. Of the area mapped, 816 polygons (81% of all polygons) represent natural/semi-natural vegetation types in the NVCS, encompassing 9,542.8 hectares (62.9%) of the total map extent.
