Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains mapped Oregon White oak and Ponderosa pine stands within selected USGS quadrangles in Mt. Hood National Forest. The data was created utilizing aerial photo interpretation and field data collection. Field mapping, from May 2006 to October 2007, was used to classify areas accessible and/or visible from public roads. The coverage incorporates the selected strata classifications for vegetation type, structural conditions, size, canopy, remnant class, and presence of Grand fir.
Purpose:
This data was created by the Northwest Habitat Institute for the USDA Forest Service.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
After revisiting the four USGS quads from 2006, some minor updates were made to the coverage beyond the addition of the Grand fir and remnant fields. There were a few attribute adjustments, as well as some polygon re-shaping. The 2007 coverage represents the most accurate depiction of current ground conditions within the constraints of this mapping method.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All polygons are closed and attributed. Topology built. Each polygon has a unique user-id. Island polygons have attribute values of zero.
Completeness_Report:
Four USGS quads were mapped in 2006 for vegetation class, structural condition, size category (dominant species), and canopy structure. The same quads were revisited in 2007 to classify the presence of Grand fir and identify remnant stands.
