Description: On November 25, 1950, a major windstorm caused significant damage in the western and central sections of the Adirondack Park. Reference: McMartin, Barbara. 1994. The Great Forest of the Adirondacks. North Country Books, Utica, NY. The hardcopy map from which this digital data set was created is a creased paper blueprint developed by the New York State Conservation Department. According to the map, the areas of storm damage were determined from aerial reconnaissance data. The blueprint was drawn by the Forest General of the New York State Conservation Department, Gerald J. Rides. The scale bar indicates the map was drawn at a 1 inch = 4 miles scale. The polygons on the original map were copied on to a cartographically correct 1:250,000 NYS DOT base map, then digitized.
