Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Bryce Canyon National Park

Metadata Updated: June 5, 2024

This reference contains the imagery data used in the completion of the baseline vegetation inventory project for the NPS park unit. Orthophotos, raw imagery, and scanned aerial photos are common files held here.

Vegetation and land use were interpreted to as detailed a level as possible from high-resolution, 9” x 9” stereo pairs of 1:12,000-scale true color aerial photography. Polygons representing vegetation or land use map classes were delineated on Mylar overlays on aerial photographs (where signatures were confusing) and with the heads-up digitizing technique (where signatures had high contrast), then transferred to a spatial database. The project used the national program standard minimum mapping unit of 0.5 ha with few exceptions.
