Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve

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.

The mapping component was initiated by photo interpretation and digitization of 4-band 2005 IKONOS imagery for the vegetation and land use classes determined through the field visit and expert knowledge of project team members. The heads-up digitization was performed at a display scale of 1:1500 to 1:2000. The digitization, evaluation, and modifications comprised an iterative and collaborative process involving the GIS analysts and the rest of the team. Preliminary maps were checked, corrected, and rechecked for boundary delineations. These image sources included 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 (3-band, Red, Green, Blue), and 2008 (4-band, Red, Green, Blue, Near Infrared) USDA FSA NAIP, 2002 and 1991 USGS DOQQs, and 1938 panchromatic imagery. Two additional 4-band (Red, Green, Blue, Near Infrared) IKONOS scenes were acquired in June and September of 2008 specifically for this project. These IKONOS image acquisitions targeted specific phenological windows that were generally not covered by other imagery.
