West, A.M. and Jarnevich, C.S., 2017, Cheatgrass mapping in Squirrel Creek Wildfire, WY in 2014: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data bundle contains some of the inputs, all of the processing instructions and all outputs from two VisTrails/SAHM workflow. These models specifically include field data of locations with >40% cover of cheatgrass (presence) and <40% cover of cheatgrass (absence). Predictors included rasters derived from LandSat 8 imagery (_archive_FinalModel_revised) or from a digital elevation model (_archive_TopoOnly_revised). Details about all inputs are included in the associated manuscript. The three bundle documentation files in each data bundle are: 1) '_archive_bundle_metadata.xml' (this file) which contains FGDC metadata describing the archive bundle. 2) '_archive_raster_inputs.csv' a list of the raster inputs that were used to generate [...]

To provide efficient and complete documentation and reproducibility for species distribution model results. Field data and predictors were collected to create predicted maps of cheatgrass patches with >40% cover within the Squirrel Creek fire area to aid U.S. Forest Service and Wyoming Game and Fish in cheatgrass control measures.
