Process step:
Process description:
Hardcopy aerial photos from 1937-1996 were reviewed to identify areas that had been continually forested. Polygons were then heads-up digitized in the GIS based on interpretation of signatures visually identified on the aerials (1994 DOQ, 1996 DOP). Forests identified on USGS Quadrangle Maps in 1988 by Leon County and the City of Tallahassee were also checked against the 1994 and 1996 aerials and digitized where applicable. Limited ground truthing was then conducted. Updates were digitized based on more recent aerials (1999 DOQ, 2001 DOP, 2005 DOP, and 2006 DOP). Additional polygons have been digitized based on identifications of forests during the site plan review process. Due to limited abilities to identify forest conditions based on visual interpretations of aerial photographs, as well limited access to sites this dataset is considered incomplete. Additionally, the boundaries delineated are estimates and are not the result of survey. The data should be used as a tool and should not be relied upon as the sole source of site information. Site specific surveys and confirmation with City or County staff biologists are necessary to determine forest presence, type, and quality.
