Title: Owens Valley Vegetation Quads
Description:
Abstract:
Shapefile containing vegetation type information for Los Angeles Department of Water and Power lands in the Owens Valley.
Purpose:
This data can be used to identify vegetation types on LADWP lands in the Owens Valley.
Supplemental_Information:
Vegetation type characterizations based on survey 1985-1987 by Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Inyo County Water Department created this dataset by merging LADWP files into a single shapefile.
