The purpose of the classification and vegetation map is to aid in the development of a management plan for the Oak Grove unit of the San Felipe Wildlife Area. The vegetation classification and mapping provides an inventory of habitat types and a measure of the extent of each type on the property, for use in assessing the biological resources present and determining appropriate management strategies. The mapping also provides a delineation of the location and extent of agricultural fields and old fields present on the property.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program (VegCAMP) created a fine-scale vegetation classification and map of the Department's Oak Grove property, San Diego County, California following FGDC and National Vegetation Classification Standards. The vegetation classification was derived from floristic field survey data collected in the field in May 2010 and was based on previously described Alliances and Associations. The map was produced using true-color 2009 1-meter National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery as the base. Supplemental imagery including 2005 1-meter California Color Infrared (CIR) and true-color 1-foot aerial imagery available through GlobeXplorer ImageConnect were also used. The minimum mapping unit (MMU) is one acre, with the exception of wetland types, which were sometimes mapped to acre. Field verification of 45% of the mapped polygons was conducted in June 2011; in combination with the 2010 sampling effort, 83% of the polygons were verified in the field.
