Description:
Abstract:
Vegetation map developed for the state of Alaska by Michael Fleming, USFS/USGS, using using the phenology of a vegetation index (AVHRR/NDVI) collected during the 1991 growing season. Polygon coverage derived from grid with 1000 km cell size, scale 1:2,500,000.
Purpose:
REQUIRED: A summary of the intentions with which the data set was developed.
