 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This is a map of 1999 USFS Landsat-based vegetation size data in the Sonoma Creek sub-basin, overlaid on top of KRIS sub-basins and Calwater Planning Watersheds. Vegetation in the lower watershed was primarily non-forest, but there were patches of mature forest in the headwaters of tributary streams in the upper watershed. The vegetation classification is accurate at a one-hectare scale (approximately 11 pixels) and is suitable for stand classification. Data were provided by the U.S. Forest Service Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento, CA. Scale = 1:271,717 .
