Summary

To create a GIS database of vegetation that covers the entire area of Ventura County. The database would be created from the most accurate sources available at the time. As additional or more accurate data are created, they will be incorporated into the vegetation database.

Description

A vegetation cover GIS database was created using available existing datasets to provide complete coverage for all of Ventura County, California. Numerous vegetation/land cover maps have been created for parts of Ventura County, at different scales, using different classification schemes. This project sought to create one GIS vegetation/land cover database and map using the currently accepted vegetation classification system, the National Vegetation Classification (NVC), which is a subset and consistent with the International Vegetation Classification system. Available GIS vegetation databases were merged to create one database, and adding one attribute field for all polygons to create the consistent vegetation/land cover classification across the county. The most accurate or refined data were used to clip data from parts of or the entire county to provide the best available vegetation cover data where available.
