Description: Technical note
Purpose: Identification of plant species, communities and zones of a barrier island can be important for planning and considering environmental impacts. In many instances vegetational patterns, boundaries, and ground coverage can be more easily identified from aerial photography than from the ground observations. This note provides guidelines on the scale of aerial photography recommended for identification of the various vegetational features on barrier islands.
