Description: Special report
Abstract: This procedural guide provides the U.S. Army Terrain Analyst with the necessary step-by-step procedures to be used in generation of vegetation factor overlays and supportive data tables. Three potential sources of information on vegetation are considered: (1) military topographic maps, (2) literature, and (3) aerial imagery. Procedures are presented for each of 13 data elements that characterize vegetation of the geographic area of interest. The included appendixes provide the Terrain Analyst with additional reference information.
