Overview

The 1,170 acres at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park is a mix of woodlands, riparian areas, prairie, fallow fields, mowed grass, and wetlands. There are approximately 462 species of plants found throughout the park, with diligent and observant volunteers and staff discovering more species each year.

The Hopewell Culture National Historic 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.
