Title:
INREV, Existing Vegetation Mapping Project, OSU Institute of Natural Resources – USDA Forest Service Southwestern Region
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
Background:Existing vegetation mapping provides basic information on the current condition of vegetation structure and composition. Beginning in 2004 the Southwestern Region developed Mid-Scale Existing Vegetation Mapping on all National Forests and Grasslands (Mellin et al. 2008). The Southwestern Region collaborated with OSU’s Institute of Natural Resources to develop new mid-scale mapping with the INREV project. Mid-scale mapping is compliant with agency technical guidance for existing vegetation (Brohman and Bryant 2005, Nelson et al. 2015). For business needs of natural resource organizations, existing vegetation mapping represents an important component in an overall inventory, monitoring, and analysis framework.Application:Existing vegetation mapping is often used in combination with ecosystem type mapping such asEcological Response Units (Wahlberg et al. 2020) for purposes of landscape assessment and habitat modeling. Existing vegetation mapping can also be combined with ecological mapping such as TEUI (Winthers et al. 2006) for assessment involving Ecological Site Descriptions (Creque et al. 1999, SRM 1995). The INREV dataset is best applied and most appropriately summarized at the HUC12 subwatershed level (10,000 – 40,000 acres) or larger areal extents.
Purpose:
Existing vegetation mapping provides basic information on the current condition of vegetation structure and composition.

Comparison with other data sets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in photointerpretation, rounding of decimal coordinates during conversion, and mapping conventions over time. Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source. If the user has modified the data in any way, they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. The user specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes made were approved by the USFS.

Attribute_Label: QUAD_MEAN_DIAM_TR_GR_1
Attribute_Definition:
Quadratic mean diameter. Quadratic mean diameter is a measure of central tree diameter tendency rather than arithmetic mean for characterizing tree size (<http://oak.snr.missouri.edu/forestry_functions/qmd.php>) and is based only on trees greater than 1.0" diameter. Compared to the arithmetic mean, QMD assigns greater weight to larger trees. QMD is determined for all tree-dominated image segments with the exception of image segments derived from the aridlands grid, which are given a value of zero.

Attribute_Label: VEG_STRUCT_STATE
Attribute_Definition:
Vegetative Structural Stage (VSS) is a system of about 26 classes to stratify growth stages of forested settings. VSS for Region 3 was developed in 1992 as an adaptation of the JWThomas classification and based on "Management Recommendations for the Northern Goshawk in the Southwestern United States” (Reynolds, Graham, and others 1992). VSS is based on tree size (diameter) and total canopy cover. The classification system is most useful for even-aged stands.
