Title: LBA/South American Data -- Vegetation Map of Brazil
Description:
Abstract:
This dataset is a digital version of the MAPA DE VEGETAO DO BRASIL (IBGE, 1988), which was digitized at the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) EROS Data Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Data are classed into three different classifications: a 59 major vegetation classification map, a 13-class generalization classification map, and a 6-class overprint classification map. Generalized classes were determined from the original subheadings on the original published map which was used use to digitize the data set. Overprint classes are used to describe areas which are best described by a combination of two classes, one from the major classification and the other from the overprint classification. Overprint classes were originally displayed with special symbols printed over major classification shades on the original map. For instance, a series of stipple marks or hash marks may have been printed on top of major class shades to represent areas which had characteristics from the major classification as well as the overprint classification. The overprint classifications are also referred to as subclasses in the original data. Additional information about this data can be obtained from The Woods Hole Research Center, Woods Hole, Massachusetts via their URL at "http://terra.whrc.org/science/tropfor/setLBA.htm". Digital images of these data are also available from the EOS-WEBSTER Image Gallary. Please see the Data Tab at the following URL: "http://eos-earthdata.sr.unh.edu/". These images can be downloaded as JPEGs and used directly in a document or printed. These data were modified, as described in documentation provided when data are ordered from EOS-WEBSTER, from the original data. Original data were downloaded from the Woods Hole Research Center Website ("http://terra.whrc.org/science/tropfor/setLBA.htm"). Original author of these data is cited as: This version of the map was made available by and digitized by: Dr. Norman Bliss, Principal Scientist Land Sciences Section Eros Data Center Sioux Falls, South Dakota 57198
