Summary
Abstract: The Central Mojave Plots Map (plots.e00) is a digital map database (point
coverage) that shows the location and vegetation type for all field reference
data used in developing the Central Mojave Vegetation Map. This digital map
database consists of releve information obtained during this project (project
field data) and plots from other field-based projects conducted in the Mojave
Desert ... View entire text

Quality No additional checks for topological consistency were performed on these data.
The Central Mojave Plots Map is composed of point locations representing
vegetation alliance types. In addition, existing data sources (retrospective
data) were evaluated and when they meet project criteria, were assigned an
alliance type and were included in the digital map database. Releves that were
classified to a vegetation type that was not mapped because it generally occurs
at less than the 5 hectare minimum mapping unit are shown in the Central Mojave
Special Features Map.
