Summary

The fine-scale vegetation map was created as part of a collaborative project between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to show the correlation between vegetation and geomorphology.

Description

The 17,158 acre Johnson Valley project area is located in San Bernardino County, 32 miles east of Victorville, CA bisected by highway 247. The fine-scale vegetation map was created as part of a collaborative project between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to show the correlation between vegetation and geomorphology. The vegetation mapping types are based on the vegetation classification that was developed for the larger Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP) mapping project (CDFW 2013). The vegetation classification was developed using a compilation of data collected for several projects including Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Environs (Keeler-Wolf et al. 1998), the Mojave Desert Ecosystem Programs Vegetation Database (Thomas et al. 2004), Vegetation of Joshua Tree National Park (La Doux et al. 2013), and Vegetation Classification and Mapping at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley National Park (in progress, draft as of 2014).

Supplemental information
Imagery The ESRI Basemap imagery service (5/05/2012) was used as the base imagery. Ancillary imagery included NAIP 2012 (true color and color infrared) and all the imagery provided by Google Earth. Field Data Collection Vegetation field reconnaissance was conducted by Todd Keeler-Wolf and Rachelle Boul during the week of February 24-28th, 2014. A total of 58 data points were collected using a reconnaissance datasheet and protocol specifically developed for this project as modified from the datasheet and protocol used for the DRECP project. Minimum mapping unit 2 acres for uplands 0.5 acre for wetlands and special types 2 acres to break on cover in overstory in 1% cover class increments: 2 acres to break on herbaceous cover class as understory 5 meter minimum width (polygon can fall below minimum width if average width of polygon meets the 5 meter minimum) Additional information can be found in the metadata report which is available at: https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=85447
* Processing environment Microsoft Windows 7 Version 6.1 (Build 7601) Service Pack 1; Esri ArcGIS 10.2.2.3552
