Summary

This vegetation is based upon the 1992 Jones and Stokes vegetation survey for Orange County California. This dataset has since been superseded by more recent vegetation surveys, but is does form the basis for historic files with Orange County Parks GIS.

Description

This dataset is the master vegetation layer for which all other historic vegetation is extracted from.
