Vegetation

Vegetation maps provide a simplified image of the mosaic of vegetation types which constitute the natural plant cover. A vegetation type is a characteristic collection of plant species which will be found on places with similar growth conditions. \\nA vegetation feature in the vegetation map is a continuous area (polygon) with the same attributes assigned according to the classification criteria of vegetation. In addition, each vegetation feature is classified according to main vetetation types (10 classes), habitats (16 classes) and suitability for sheep and cattle grazing.\\nToday there are two mapping systems in Norway: one for detailed mapping at 1: 5000–20.000 and one for more general mapping at 1:20.000–50.000. The data on vegetation types from the detailed system can be combined with data relating to vegetation types in the general system.
