Rogers Research Site Bulletin 4: Vegetation Mapping of Rogers Research Site, north Laramie Mountains, Wyoming, Using High Spatial Resolution Photography and Heads-Up Digitizing

This is the fourth in a series of bulletins focused on research, teaching, and extension at the Rogers Research Site (RRS), a 320-acre property in the Laramie Mountains that Colonel William C. Rogers bequeathed to the University of Wyoming in 2002. RRS Bulletin 4 details a 2006 vegetation mapping project of RRS using high spatial resolution photography and heads-up digitizing. Since this project was completed prior to the 2012 Arapaho Fire, which burned the majority of ponderosa pine and other vegetation across nearly 100,000 acres, including RRS property, the vegetation map will help researchers, land managers, and others assess temporal changes in habitat structure and land cover within RRS and adjacent lands.
