Vegetation Inventory - 5K


Data Identification
Abstract: This feature delineates forest and vegetation stands in the Yukon at a scale of 1:5,000. It is an operational level forest inventory (as opposed to a management level). This inventory has been completed in various stages, between 2013 and 2014, and delineation via softcopy from stereo images acquired in the years 2007 and 2012. Theaerialimages used for the Haines Junction region (Champagne and Aishihik Traditional Territory) had a ground sample distance (GSD) of 40 cm and were collected in both color and infrared. Theaerialimagery in the southcentral Yukonwere 1:40,000 black and white hardcopyimages, scanned at 60 microns or approximately 1m GSD.
Purpose: Vegetation inventory polygons contain a variety of detailed information on vegetation growing within the polygons. For example, the age and type of trees growing on the land base in Yukon and shrubs growing in the alpine. The data set is most often used in forest, habitat, wildlife and other natural resource management. This inventory set was delineated using stereo images and softcopy technology at an approximate scale of 1:5000. This finer, large scale interpretation allows for use at an operational level having more polygon detail. This inventory provides a foundation for various land use and economic activities. It provides a broader based vegetation classification than previous versions with the intent to increase its utility. The “Yukon Vegetation Inventory Manual version 3” is a guideline for the interpretation of this dataset.
