Presettlement forest types were mapped as fuzzy sets from point data representing trees contained in General Land Office survey notes (circa 1850) for Chippewa County, Michigan. The resulting representation agreed with a polygon map of the same forest types at 66% of the locations (represented as grid cells) in the county. Boundary vagueness was defined in relation to the slope of a linear function fitted to the negative relation between entropy offorest types and distance to polygon boundaries. The similarity between forest type compositions (i.e. classification ambiguity) was shown to account for 55% of the variation in boundary vagueness.
