Description:
Abstract:
The VegHardwoodAspen feature class contains polygon corporate data which depicts known stand locations of Aspen on the WhitmanPine and Wallowa Valley Districts. This feature class is a product of the Pacific Northwest Region Coverage to Geodatabase Conversion Project in an effort to standardize data throughout the Region.
Purpose:
Corporate data contained within the VegHardwoodAspen feature class is intended for spatial display and analysis purposes.

Process_Description:
Feature Class is a merge of two feature classes from district libraries.  T:\FS\Reference\GIS\r06_waw\Data_wmo\Vegetation.gdb\Aspen and T:\FS\Reference\GIS\r06_waw\Data_whit\Vegetation.gdb\Aspen_2002.  Aspen_2002 was originally a point layer.  Buffered each point with 60' to make into approximately 1/4 acres polygons.  This was discussed with Joe Sciarrino (Pine Silviculturist) and he approved the method.  Aspen was already a polygon layer.
