Description:

Towards a user-friendly vegetation map of Namibia: ground truthing approach to vegetation mapping.

Summary / Notes:

Information regarding the vegetation of Namibia is not readily available, and the few concise sources that are available provide only a broad overview, are sometimes grossly inaccurate and provide very little information that is useful for planning and management purposes. For this reason the Vegetation Survey of Namibia project was initiated in 1996, with progress in the beginning being relatively slow. During the BIOTA project, more information on the vegetation along the BIOTA transects was needed, prompting collaboration between the two projects. This led to a rapid advancement of the Vegetation Survey of Namibia project, not only in terms of the number of plots, which were surveyed, but also in terms of data- management, processing, mapping and presentation. A short overview of the project's achievements to date is given in this paper, with some examples of mapping results and information presentation.
