LANDFIRE 2016 Remap Existing Vegetation Cover (EVC) Micronesia

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

LANDFIRE's (LF) 2016 Remap (Remap) Existing Vegetation Cover (EVC) represents the vertically projected percent cover of the live canopy for a 30m cell. EVC is produced separately for tree, shrub, and herbaceous lifeforms. Training data depicting percentages of canopy cover are obtained from plot-level ground-based visual assessments and lidar observations. These are combined with Landsat imagery (from multiple seasons), topographic, climate, and other geospatial data sets to inform models built independently for each lifeform. Tree, shrub, and herbaceous lifeforms each have a potential range from 10% to 100%. The three independent lifeform datasets are merged into a single product. The EVC product is then reconciled through QA/QC measures to ensure lifeform is synchronized with both Existing Vegetation Height (EVH) and Type (EVT) products. Disturbance events not visible in the source imagery are accounted for by incorporating LF Remap Annual Disturbance products. LF uses EVC as an input for LF Remap Fuel Vegetation Cover (FVC).
