It should also be noted that the classification schemes adopted for this study are specific to the needs undertaken. The land use maps used by the municipal and regional agencies of the area have similar categories, but each jurisdiction maintains its own precise definitions based on local laws, regulations, and other needs. For example, definitions of Rural Residential development may vary from 1 house per 2.5 acres to 1 house per 5 (or more) acres. In the 1996 study of the Camp Pendleton region, over 200 different vegetation and land use classifications were described by local governments (often with some functional overlap).
