Vegetation Inventory - Whitehorse - 10k


Data Identification
Abstract: This feature delineates enhanced vegetation, forest and cover attributes for the Whitehorse, Yukon area at a scale of 1:10,000. The field work for the inventory was carried out during the winter of 2004/2005 with the project delivered by the contractor in October 2005. Delineation was based on 1:10,000 black and white photography acquired by the City of Whitehorse in 2001. New mapping and DTM were available for this project based on that photography. Vegetation inventory polygons contain a variety of detailed information on, for example, the age and type of trees growing on the land base in the vicinity of Whitehorse.
Purpose: Whitehorse Vegetation Inventory polygons contain a variety of detailed information on, for example, the age and type of trees growing on the land base in Whitehorse, Yukon. The data has a range of uses but was largely intended for forest inventory, fire management, planning and ecological analysis in the Whitehorse area. The project was initially undertaken to support the “Fire Smart” initiative in the Whitehorse area. This inventory provides more detail than the “Management Inventory” (which is delineated from 1:40,000 photography). Examples of this enhancement are: minimum polygon size of 5ha, estimated volumes and additional site and cover attributes are provided. This inventory is an “Operational” level inventory. Specifications for this project are found in Whitehorse Area Inventory Manual – Vegetation Classification, September 2005, Forest Management branch.
