Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The U.S. Geological Survey Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) has produced a vegetation spatial database coverage (vegetation map) for the Acadia National Park Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program (VMP). Thematic accuracy requirements of the VMP specify 80% accuracy for each map class (theme) that represents National Vegetation Classification ... View entire text

Purpose: PURPOSE: The Accuracy Assessment Spatial Database provides spatially referenced locations that were selected for field assessment to support a statistical analysis of a thematic AA of the vegetation spatial database coverage for the Acadia National Park Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program (see Cross Reference at the end of this section for more information on the ...

Quality Attribute accuracy was tested by manual comparison of the source with hard copy printouts. Attributes were further verified by visual inspection.

Tests for logical consistency are performed by digitizing software (ATLAS*GIS).

Dataset contains boundaries for only 340 of 375 park units. The missing units are typically very small (an acre or less) and don't show up on U.S. ... View entire text
