Doctor, D.H., Young, J.A., Christman, M.C., Niemiller, M.L., Zigler, K.S., Weary, D.J., and Culver, D.C., 2016, GIS data for predicting the occurrence of cave-inhabiting fauna based on features of the Earth surface environment in the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) Region: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


The data contained in this file is one of several datasets produced in support of the project entitled “Classification and Mapping of Cave and Karst Resources” for the region encompassing the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). The results of this project are divided into a series of geospatial information layers (shapefiles and raster data). The files provide a comprehensive overview of data availability on obligate cave-dwelling fauna and bat ranges useful for examining relationships between environmental factors and biological diversity and distribution within karst areas of the Appalachian LCC.

This raster dataset represents mean elevation (in meters) of a 1 km elevation grid, interpolated from 90 m resolution Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) elevation data. The data were produced to support spatial statistical modeling of cave-inhabiting species distribution in relation to physical factors of the surface environment.
