PURPOSE:
To document the distribution of vegetation over the Andrews Experimental Forest and changes over time.
METHODS:
Processing Procedures - TV061:
Description: TV06101:Willamette National Forest vegetation classification (1997), with 2008 updated harvest units, using aerial photography and satellite imagery. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. Clipped to the Andrews boundary, Coverage was converted to a shapefile and projected to Nad83 Datum. Harvest units and meadows were updated with information from 2008 Andrews LiDAR data.
Instrumentation: scale: 1:12,000
Processing Procedures - TV061 (1):
Description: TV06102: Willamette National Forest vegetation classification (1996) clipped to the Andrews Experimental Forest. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. George Lienkaemper imported, clipped, and did some edits in 1997 Coverage was converted to a shapefile and projected to Nad83 Datum
Processing Procedures - TV061 (2):
Description: TV06103: Willamette National Forest vegetation classification (1993) clipped to the Andrews Experimental Forest. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. George Lienkaemper imported, clipped, and did some edits in 1997 Coverage was converted to a shapefile and projected to Nad83 Datum
Processing Procedures - TV061 (3):
Description:

TV06104: Willamette National Forest vegetation classification (2002) clipped to the Andrews Experimental Forest. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery. Created by WNF using aerial photography and satellite imagery.

The VEG table exists in both Oracle and INFO databases. It was originally developed from queries of the district VEGIS database (oracle) and then transferred to INFO and attached to the VEG layer in GIS. Most attention was given to populating the following fields: yr_origin, size_class, land_use, land_cover, and activity. No attempt was made to ensure that all other fields were populated. This forestwide coverage was compiled from district data July, 2000. Forestwide coverages are compiled from district information as needed, on average every 6 months. The currency of data for individual polygons varies across the forest depending on district update and edit cycles. Coverage was converted to a shapefile and projected to Nad83 Datum
