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). In support of the mapping project, various spatial database boundary coverages were either produced or modified from their original source. These boundary coverages are: 1) Project Boundary, 2) Map Data Boundary, 3) Park Boundary, and 4) Quad Boundary. The spatial coverages are projected in Universal Transverse Mercator, Zone 19, with datum in North American Datum of 1983.

Purpose: PURPOSE: These spatial database coverages were either produced or modified from its original source to support the Acadia National Park Vegetation Mapping Project, USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program. This metadata report supports four spatial database coverages (project boundary, map data boundary, park boundary, and quad boundary).

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: All spatial coverages were produced ... View entire text
