    Description

    The pattern of land use and ownership—including sizes of ownerships, types of landowners, and their various management objectives—affects the level of benefits available from the California's hardwood resource. Geographic information system (GIS) databases of ownership and population characteristics were developed for two California counties using local assessors' data, Census data and existing vegetation maps. The utility of these spatial data sets is demonstrated in preliminary comparisons of hardwood land ownership patterns in Nevada and Shasta Counties. Refinement of these data capture techniques and the addition of other data layers will greatly increase the potential for more detailed analysis of ownership patterns.
