    Title: Vegetation Mapping Service for Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
    Author:
    Comments: This map document displays the vegetation at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. This map was created by the Southeast Coast Network in 2015 as part of the NPS Inventory and Monitoring Programs, Vegetation Mapping Inventory.
    Subject: The Southeast Coast Network (SECN), with the support of the National Park Service (NPS) Vegetation Mapping Inventory Program (VMI), described and mapped vegetation at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (KEMO). This mapping effort was accomplished through collaboration with the Southeast regional office of NatureServe (Raleigh/Durham, N.C.). The mapping area was 2,543 hectares (ha), encompassing the entire boundary of the park plus an additional buffered area of adjacent land. NatureServe ecologists identified plant associations for the park and a remote sensing specialist from the Southeast Coast Network conducted the vegetation mapping using 1:12,000-scale, color-infrared aerial photography and digital orthophotography. NatureServe collected vegetation and environmental data from 35 vegetation classification plots, and the remote sensing specialist assessed 91 observation points. The Atkins consulting firm was contracted by the Southeast Coast Network to conduct an accuracy assessment (AA), which entailed sampling 243 additional points. Fieldwork and mapping were completed between 2005 and 2015. A total of 24 map classes were developed to map the vegetation and general land cover of Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and surroundings, including the following: 16 map classes representing natural/semi-natural vegetation at the association level in the National Vegetation Classification System (NVCS), 3 map classes representing cultural vegetation (e.g. developed) in the NVCS, and 5 map classes representing non-vegetated units (e.g. open water bodies, buildings, roads). Features were interpreted using 1:12,000 scale digital color-infrared aerial photography (flown 31 May 2009) through heads-up-digitizing in ArcGIS (Version 10.0, © 2010 Environmental Systems Research Institute, Redlands, California). Polygons were mapped to a 0.5-hectare minimum mapping unit (MMU).
