Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program

The Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program (VegCAMP) develops and maintains California's expression of the National Vegetation Classification System. We implement its use through assessment and mapping projects in high-priority conservation and management areas, through training programs, and through working continuously on best management practices for field assessment, classification of vegetation data, fine-scale vegetation mapping, and archiving of vegetation data. Completing a state-wide vegetation map and classification in collaboration with other agencies and organizations is the current goal of the program.
