Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Congaree 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.

A total of 42 photos were needed to provide full photo coverage of the study area. Because of adequate control and sufficient overlap between flight lines and photos, it was determined that interpretation would be done on every other photograph. Each photo was prepared with a 9” x 9” frosted mylar overlay for the photo signature delineations. Photo overlay were then pin-registered to the photos; project labels were affixed to each overlay identifying the photo number, status of work (Initial PI, QC), and photo interpreters responsible for that task. Study area boundaries were drafted onto each photo overlay, defining the area within the photograph to be interpreted. The study area boundaries were edge matched to adjacent photos to ensure full coverage.
