Geospatial data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Stones River National Battlefield

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.

In 2003, we returned to Stones River National Battlefield to follow-up on the first three goals and to cooperate with the University of Georgia Center for Remote Sensing and Mapping Science on their project to map all vegetation communities in the park. We supplied Phyllis Jackson from the University of Georgia with plot data and a dichotomous key to the National Vegetation Classification (NVC) associations of the park and we walked throughout the park to help identify mapping units. Since photointerpreters rely heavily on canopy species composition, understory species composition, and disturbance to classify polygons and ecologists also rely on the shrub and herb layer to classify types, the mapping units and the vegetation classification units do not always crosswalk or match up perfectly. The last step of the project was to reconcile mapping units with vegetation associations to produce mapping units that match up well with the ecological units of the National Vegetation Classification (NVC). We continue to work with Phyllis Jackson of the University of Georgia on the mapping; the vegetation map will be produced separately by the Center for Remote Sensing and Mapping Science and will include any crosswalk as specified in the cooperative agreement.
