Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Kaloko Honokohau National Historical Park

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.

To produce the spatial database and map layer, 2006, 0.6-meter, 4-band Quickbird satellite imagery (supplemented with 2008 Quickbird imagery) was provided by PACN. By comparing the signatures on the imagery to field and ground data 30 map units (18 vegetated, five barren, and seven land-use / land-cover) were developed and directly crosswalked or matched to their corresponding rUSNVC plant associations. The interpreted and remotely sensed data were converted to Geographic Information System (GIS) databases and maps were printed, field tested, reviewed, and revised. The final map layer was accessed for thematic accuracy by overlaying 90 independent accuracy assessment points. The final overall accuracy of the map layer was determined to be 97% with a Kappa value of 82%.
