Total Vegetation 1992

Metadata Updated: May 10, 2018

The coverage contains 1992 vegetation polygons representing GCES monitoring sites. These data were developed by Dr. G. Waring Northern AZ. University for use in the study of current and historical riparian vegetation trends in the Grand Canyon. These data were delineated from 1:4,800 scale color photos flown on Oct. 12 1992. The flow of the Colorado River during photo acquistion was 8,000 CFS. These data were further edited by J. B. Sankey to only include polygons mapped by G. Waring with > 60 % vegetation canopy cover.
