A current inventory of an area’s vegetation data and a means of monitoring change over time is essential for comprehensive land use and urban forestry planning. Measuring current vegetation conditions and how they are changing can be achieved through a Vegetation Classification Map. Sanborn Vegetation Classification Maps quantify and classify vegetation for a defined area through a series of thematic categories.
Using remotely sensed imagery and semi-automated classification methods, Sanborn can create cost-effective and accurate vegetation mapping products for applications across a broad spectrum of needs. Vegetation Maps can be generated using a standard classification scheme (for example: USGS Andersen Vegetation Scheme), or they can utilize a customized classification scheme to meet a specific client need.
