The Northeast Climate Science Center presents "Critical Evaluation of Methods and Outcomes for Habitat/Ecological Systems Classification and Mapping in the Northeast and Midwest United States", a webinar presentation by David D. Diamond of the Missouri Resource Assessment Partnership and Don Faber-Langendoen of NatureServe.

The goal of this research was to review and compare four vegetation map products for the eastern USA, with an eye toward providing a single ‘best map product’ insofar as possible. Map producers included LANDFIRE, Southeast GAP Analysis, TNC, and NatureServe.  The LANDFIRE map covered the entire region, as did the NatureServe map, which is a compilation and revision of the LANDFIRE and GAP maps.
