Delaware Watershed Vegetation Community/Land Cover Maps

Delaware Vegetation Community/Land Cover Mapping Project

 

     This project was started when Robert Coxe worked at the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife and continues to this day at Baccharis Consulting LLC.  The goal is to produce a vegetation community/land cover map drawn to 2007 aerial imagery of Delaware that has no minimum mapping unit and is the best that can be produced.  Once the 2007 maps are completed, it is intended to go to other imagery sets (2002, 2012 and others) in order to have a comparison of change over time in regards to sea level rise, vegetation communities/land covers and climate change.  These analyzes have already been completed for most of the managed lands (State Parks and Wildlife Areas) in Delaware.

Structure of Links to Watershed Maps

 

     All of the vegetation community/land cover maps in Delaware are mapped by watershed.  Each of the sub menus will take you to the individual watersheds in Delaware.  Each watershed subsection includes a summary of the watershed and status of the mapping in the watershed.  Also included are shapefiles of the watershed map and a report of the watershed if it is complete.  There are also links to managed area reports if they are located within a particular watershed.
