 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This is a map of 1999 USFS Landsat vegetation type data in the Humboldt Bay Basin. Unlike the vegetation size theme, these data differentiate between hardwoods and conifers. The vegetation classification is accurate at a one-hectare scale (approximately 11 pixels) and is suitable for stand classification. Data provided by the U.S. Forest Service Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento, CA.
