Area Jacoby Creek
Topic Map: F. USFS Riparian Vegetation Size, Jacoby Creek Sub-basin
 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This is a map of 1999 USFS Landsat vegetation size data within 90-meter riparian buffer zones in the Jacoby Creek sub-basin. Reaches of streams flowing through grassland or open flatland often have Non-Forest riparian zones. This may be partially due to grazing and agricultural management practices, as well as urbanization. Data provided by the U.S. Forest Service Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento, CA. The vegetation classification is accurate at a one-hectare scale (approximately 11 pixels) and is suitable for stand classification.
