The MAPA DE VEGETACAO DO BRASIL was digitized at the U.S. Geological Survey's EROS Data Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It was produced by:

Ministerio da Agricultura Instituto Brasileiro de Desenvolvimento Florestal Secretaria de Planejamento e Coordenacao da Presidencia da Republica Fundacao Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatistica - IBGE 1988

Original scale 1:5,000,000 Original projection: Polyconic

The original map contains both vegetation codes and overprints. The Vegetation codes were digitized using the same one- or two-letter codes that are used on the legend of the published map. The overprint codes were sequentially assigned in the order that they were encountered in the map legend:

OP Overprint code --------------

1 CAMPOS 2 CAMPANHA GAUCHA 3 CAMPOS DE RORAIMA 4 CAMP. GAUCHA 5 FLORESTA ATLANTICA 6 ATIVIDADES AGRICOLAS

Where there was no overprinting, an overprint code of zero (0) was used. In the ANTROPICA column, the legend defines the codes S, E, T, D, A, M, F, C, and P to indicate human influences, and the map is shaded with fine dots. These are not considered overprints because the vegetation codes uniquely identify these conditions, and the overprint code is zero (0). In some cases, such as where the D code is combined wi ) th FLORESTA ATLANTICA, then a non-zero overprint code is used.
