Vegetation mapping

We have produced a 30m-resolution raster map of simple vegetation classes for western central Yellowstone National Park. The map was produced using Landsat ETM+ remote sensing technology, and delineates the following classes:

  • Closed-canopy forest
  • Open forest / partially burned forest
  • Burned forest
  • Meadow
  • Water

Here's a low-resolution image of the data:

In 2004 we created a refined land use/land cover map defining 21 classes. Here is a low- resolution image of the data:
