As an urban park, Guilford Courthouse National Military Park hosts hundreds of species of flora and fauna. The 89 hectares of this property all lie within the upper Cape Fear River drainage. Due to the varied history of the land area, most of the land is considered to be successional, since most of the present forest cover originated after 1933.

The Guilford Courthouse National Military Park Vegetation Inventory Project delivers many geospatial and vegetation data products, including an in-depth project report discussing methods and results, which include descriptions to vegetation associations, field keys to vegetation associations, map classification, and map-class descriptions. The suite of products also includes a database of vegetation plots, and accuracy assessment (AA) sites; digital images of field sites; digital aerial imagery; digital maps; a contingency table listing AA results; and a geodatabase of vegetation, field sites (vegetation plots, and AA sites), aerial imagery, project boundary, and metadata.


The products of vegetation mapping projects are stored and managed in the National Park Service's Data Store, a repository for documents and publications relating to park resources. From the highlighted items below, click on the type of information you are looking for.
