Jarnevich, C.S., and West, A., 2018, Data for cheatgrass mapping in Squirrel Creek Wildfire and Arapaho 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 a single VisTrails/SAHM workflow. This model specifically includes field data of locations with >40% cover of cheatgrass (presence) and <40% cover of cheatgrass (absence) from two wildfire locations in Wyoming. Predictors included rasters derived from Landsat 8 imagery and from a digital elevation model. Details about both inputs are included in the associated manuscript described in the larger work citation of the '_archive_bundle_metadata.xml' metadata record. We developed models for each location and tested the transferability of the models to the other location. We built on previous work developing models for the Squirrel Creek [...]

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 and Arapaho fire area to determine if models could be transferable between locations.
