MoRAP is working with the National Park Service (NPS) as part of a nationwide vegetation mapping effort. This portion of the project is being conducted at Padre Island National Seashore, Texas. MoRAP has completed similar work for the NPS in nine other park units (see Related Projects).
Basic products will include:
- A vegetation report with vegetation types named according to or cross-walked to the most current version of the provisional National Vegetation Classification content based on field plot sampling and tabular summaries of plot data by vegetation
- A fine-resolution current vegetation map for the park with appropriate attributes in a GIS database.
- A key to classified vegetation types.
- An accuracy assessment report of the final map produced independently.
