Summary

It is intended to provide those interested in the Survey of California Vegetation a view of all the projects, with some information about how and when those projects were completed (or are being completed).

Description

This metadata layer shows the footprint of vegetation mapping projects completed in California that have used the Manual California of Vegetation (MCV 1st edition) or the National Vegatation Classification Standards (MCV 2nd edition/online) as a basis for vegetation classification. It provides basic information about each project. It is current as of November 2019
