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

Metadata Updated: June 5, 2024

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 total of 39 classes of land cover were mapped on Fire Island and the William Floyd Estate (Table 6.). These are comprised of 24 types mapped to NVCS association, 1 complex of 2 NVCS alliances, and 14 non-NVCS classes (Figure 5a-d.). Four associations were identified on Fire Island and the William Floyd Estate but do not appear on the map due to their rarity, small relative size, and/or difficulties in identifying them with aerial photography. These types were Oligohaline Marsh, Brackish Marsh, Salt Panne, and North Atlantic Upper Ocean Beach.
