Imagery data for the Vegetation Mapping Inventory Project of Vicksburg National Military 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.

In the course of developing a land cover map for VICK, the NWRC acquired leaf-on 3-band color infrared (CIR) photographic images of VICK from an aircraft platform on September 30, 2004 in nine photographic frames, at a scale of 1:24,000. NWRC created [presumably scanned the frames] a 1-meter resolution digital orthophoto mosaic image (.tif) of VICK and environs up to 100 meters from the park boundary. We used this imagery indirectly in employing the land cover map boundaries for thematically coarse land cover classes and directly for more accurately mapping forested vegetation associations for the NPSVI map for VICK.
