Abstract:
This GIS data set represents the cypress swamp habitat type reselected from the fl_veg03 data set (2003).
In 1990, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) completed a project to map Florida vegetation and land cover using 1985-89 Landsat Thematic Mapper satellite imagery. The resulting digital database contained 17 natural and semi-natural land cover types, 4 land cover types indicative of human disturbance, and 1 water class. By 2003 (the year of the imagery used in this project), the earlier data set (comprised mostly of 1986-87 imagery) was about 16-17 years old, and could no longer be considered current. Not only was the earlier vegetation and land cover data set becoming out of date, but so were the wildlife and strategic habitat models that were based on that data. In order to keep our vegetation, land cover, and wildlife habitat models current, FWC staff realized the need to develop a new, updated vegetation and land cover map for Florida.
Cypress swamps are regularly inundated wetlands form a forested border along large rivers, creeks, and lakes, or occur in depressions as circular domes or linear strands. These communities are strongly dominated by either bald cypress or pond cypress, with very low numbers of scattered black gum, red maple, and sweetbay. Understory and ground cover are usually sparse due to frequent flooding but sometimes include such species as buttonbush, lizard's-tail, and various ferns.
Purpose:
The purpose is to show the cypress swamp habitat type derived from fl_veg03 (digital vegetation and land cover data set for Florida derived from 2003 Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper satellite imagery).
Supplemental_Information:
Prior to July 1, 2004, the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) was known as the Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI). The institute name has not been changed in historical data sets or references to work completed by the Florida Marine Research Institute. The institute name has been changed in references to ongoing research, new research, and contact information.

Process_Description:
This data set was converted from the original GRID data set to a vector coverage using ArcGIS Spatial Analyst. The coverage was loaded to ArcSDE 9.1 to a feature dataset with a precision value of 1, so that rounding errors would not change the area from the value in the 30 meter gris.
