The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is located outside of Lincoln City, Indiana and consists of 198.6 acres. This ecoregion, in general, was historically dominated by oak-hickory or mixed mesophytic forests prior to European settlement. Five vegetation types were mapped and quantified. Most types were related to vegetation recovery from past human disturbance.

The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial 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.
