Delineation of polygons, and characterization of vegetation conditions for each polygon, was accomplished by awarding a contract to BAF, Inc. in 1996 during the Desolation wa-tershed analysis effort.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Aerial photographs covering the Desolation watershed on North Fork John Day Ranger District (approximately 70,000 acres) were provided to the contractor, who then delineated polygons and classified vegetation conditions within each polygon. All delineation was completed on acetate overlays, not on the photos themselves. Polygon delineation and vegetation classification standards were the same as those used for in-terpretation of contemporary aerial photography in 1996. Delineation of polygons, and characterization of vegetation conditions for each polygon, was accomplished by awarding a contract to BAF, Inc. in 1996 during the Desolation wa-tershed analysis effort.
