Summary

The collected data represent a baseline survey of selected invasive plants within the riparian corridors of southern Orange County coastal watersheds

Description

This dataset provides the known distribution of Arundo (Arundo donax) in southern Orange County. The surveys were conducted from May to June, 2007 and were funded by the California Department of Fish and Game. There are four other datasets on invasive plants for this area delineating the distribution of pampas grass, Canary Island date palm, Mexican fan palm, and 12 other invasive species.

Data Quality

Scope of quality information
Resource level dataset




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description
No tests for logical consistency were conducted.




Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
Comprehensive surveys (both in the office and field) were conducted for arundo, pampas grass, and palms (Mexican fan and Canary Island date) within and adjacent to the riparain corridors of the select coastal watersheds. Palms and pampas purposely planted in public and private landscaping were excluded unless there were instances that occurred adjacent to riparian areas. Additional invasive species within the riparian zone were mapped during the field verification process.




Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Attributes assigned from heads-up digitizing in the office were field verified unless there were issues with access to property and/or line of sight due to other vegetation cover, structures, etc. Accuracy of the attribute "COV" has yet to be determined. Percentages were based on a combination of aerial photo interpretation in the office and visual inspection from the ground. In some cases, values may be moderately under or over-estimated again because of issues with access to property and/or line of sight due to other vegetation cover, structures, etc.




Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension horizontal


Measure description
Positional accuracy is no better than that of the base photography used to delineate extent. Cartographic offsets may be present in the data due to the photography's scale and legibility constraints. When feature boundaries were difficult to delineate (both in the office and field), "rough" estimated boundaries were drawn. Circumstances arise when (a) These circumstances arise when line of sight is blocked due to vegetation cover, structures, terrain, etc, and/or (b) when collection occurs in steep canyons where the GPS signal was lost. These conditions may lead to positional errors greater than the estimated error value stated below.


Quantitative test results
Value ~.5m-3m


Evaluation method
This value is a rough estimate based on a combination of the base photography resolution and the GPS unit accuracy. No further testing was performed.

Process step
Description
A preliminary survey for arundo, pampas grass, Mexican fan palm, and Canary Island date palm was conducted in-office using heads-up digitizing in conjunction with several high-resolution aerial imagery datasets. Oblique imagery (via the Pictometry extension for ArcGIS and maps.live.com) was used as a primary resource to assist with plant identification and location. Project data was then copied onto a field tablet (Xplore ix104C3) for follow-up verification.

Process step
Description
A field mapper verified preliminary in-house surveys using a Tablet PC/GPS unit (Xplore ix104c3 with hard-mounted Xplore GPS module). The mapper used his GPS location in conjunction with high-resolution aerial imagery within ArcPad to identify and confirm locations and attribute records of the preliminary surveys. Additional invasive species found in the field were also recorded in the database.
