Metadata Updated: August 19, 2017

LAND_COVER_PRESETTLEMENT_IDNR_IN.SHP is a polygon shapefile showing generalized presettlement vegetation types of Indiana, circa 1820. The work was based on original land survey records and modern soil maps of counties in Indiana. The original published paper map from 1965 (Lindsey) provides five generalized classifications of vegetation types, and the article that contains the map offers descriptions for each classification: Classification Description ------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Quercus - Carya "Oak-Hickory" forest type Fagus - Acer "Beech-Maple" forest type Fagus - Quercus - Acer - Carya "Mixed" forest type Wetlands Wetlands, marshes, swamps, & bogs vegetation (including Wet Prairie) Dry Prairie Dry Prairie vegetation (tallgrass lands)
