Abstract: This map series includes the Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory maps as well as Current Vegetation Cover (CVC) for Wildlife Resource Inventory and the Assessment and Current Cover Types (CCT) for Wildlife Habitat Inventory. This series of reports and hardcopy maps provides a broad vegetation inventory for the Green Area and White Area. The maps depict both forestry and agricultural based vegetation cover types including those native and introduced to the province, as well as height, and density. In some cases non-vegetated areas are included in the inventory. The Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory and Current Cover Types for Wildlife Habitat Inventory maps were created at a scale of 1:100 000. The Current Vegetation Cover for Wildlife Resource Inventory and Assessment maps were created at a scale of 1:250 000. The legend for the Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory maps is slightly more detailed than the legend for the Current Cover Types for Wildlife Habitat Inventory maps. This product can be viewed on a computer, printed or be plotted in part or in whole. All available maps are provided in Adobe PDF and Tif format within downloadable WinZip files. This series is not updated and contains a range of publication dates. These maps are not available as geo-referenced rectified images or GIS-ready data.

Data quality info:

Data quality: Scope: Scope: Hierarchy level: Scope code: dataset Lineage: Lineage: Statement: The Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory and associated hardcopy maps were originally created for wildlife habitat evaluation. The hardcopy maps were subsequently scanned into digital format to preserve the repository from future degradation and to improve product delivery. The Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory and its two associated map series were created from Landsat hardcopy images (usually Thematic Mapper bands 3, 5 and 7) from the mid 1980s to the early 1990s. Subsequent to their creation, the Reconnaissance Vegetation Inventory (RVI) and associated hardcopy maps have been scanned into 400 dpi .tif and .pdf images. There are reports associated with some of these images as indicated in the status map. Additional sources of information such as air photos, reports and field checks were used to train the interpreter and verify the cover type.
