Vegetation mapping has been an important step in the development of State Park general plans, because it a displays a full array of biological diversity of any park planning unit, thus providing an efficient context in which to conduct natural resource planning.
The Anza Borrego Desert State Park (ABDSP) Vegetation Map depicts vegetation within the Park and its surrounding environment. The map was prepared by the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) under contract to the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) to assist DPR with preparation of a General Plan for ABDSP. The vegetation map was prepared using aerial photographs, field investigation, vegetation classification, and GIS processing and provides information on the location and extent of 94 vegetation types in the project area. The primary vegetation classification used for the project is based on A Manual of California Vegetation (Sawyer and Keeler-Wolf 1995). The data and classification work arising from this project will be used to refine future editions of the Manual. The vegetation map references other vegetation classifications as well.
