This dataset displays the Vector Ruggedness Measure (VRM) for the DRECP study site and surrounding 12 km buffer at 270m resolution. This dataset was originally derived at 30m resolution, using the 30m NED, and run with a 9x9 (270m) neighborhood size. The resulting VRM dataset was projected to CA Albers Equal Area NAD83 and resampled to 270m resolution to match the DRECP statistical species distribution models. The Vector Ruggedness Measure measures terrain ruggedness as the variation in three-dimensional orientation of grid cells within a neighborhood. Vector analysis is used to calculate the dispersion of vectors normal (orthogonal) to grid cells within the specified neighborhood. This method effectively captures variability in slope [...]
