Vegetation

LF existing vegetation layers describe the following elements: existing vegetation type (EVT), existing vegetation canopy cover (EVC), and existing vegetation height (EVH). These layers are created using predictive landscape models based on extensive field-referenced data, satellite imagery and biophysical gradient layers using classification and regression trees. LF potential vegetation layers describe the following elements: bio-physical settings (BPS) and environmental site potential (ESP). These layers are created using predictive landscape models based on extensive field-referenced data and biophysical gradient layers using classification and regression trees.

Existing VegetationPotential Vegetation
Existing Vegetation Type - complexes of plant communities
Existing Vegetation Cover - vertically projected percent cover of the live canopy layer for a specific area
Existing Vegetation Height - average height of the dominant vegetation
Existing Vegetation Type, Cover, and Height agree by lifeform for every pixel. Use existing vegetation layers together for a more complete representation of the vegetated landscape.
Biophysical Settings - vegetation that may have been dominant on the landscape pre Euro-American settlement
Biophysical Settings Models and Descriptions (non-spatial) - state-and-transition models representing pre-settlement reference conditions for each biophysical setting
Environmental Site Potential - vegetation that could be supported at a given site based on the biophysical environment
Other
LANDFIRE Reference Database (LFRDB) - consists of vegetation and fuel data from geo-referenced sampling units nationwide
