This raster file represents classification and mapping results for priority area 1 of the Cody Region and Yellowstone National Park land cover remote sensing project. Extensive field collected reference data describing the range of plant communities and habitat types comprising the Bighorn Basin have been analyzed to produce a classification of land cover types based on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) Wildlife Observation System (WOS). Corresponding land cover classes were subsequently spatially modeled using a non-parametric Classification and Regression Tree (CART) algorithm that integrated both spectral data from Landsat Thematic Mapper satellite imagery and a variety of ancillary environmental data...
The Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC) is an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of Wyoming focused on the development of geospatial information and technologies and their applications in science, education, government and business. Access: http://www.wygisc.uwyo.edu/ Land cover mapping over this large region with an emphasis on shrub vegetation communities Snow cover mapping representing late season snow cover for two winter scenarios (normal vs. heavy snow years) Change detection on 5-year intervals from the present to the advent of the Landsat TM satellite in 1984. The project timeline calls for the completion of the SW Wyoming products by December 2006 and central Wyoming...
The objectives of this work were to map the distribution of the 2 most important habitat associations to moose in the Southern Rockies in order to develop predictive seasonal habitat models. Two seperate datasets were the result of this work, including Deciduous forest and riparian shrublands (Riparian Areas for Moose Winter Habitat Selection, Medicine Bow National Forest, Wyoming).
Raster file of snow cover index at 30m pixel level developed from path36: 14 March, path 35: 1998, 3730: 2 February, 1986, and 1 February, 1998, Landsat images. These images were classified separately and then mosaicked together. Extent corresponds to the area of the Central Wyoming and Lander Extent mapping boundary. Snow classification ranges across five classes from 'No Snow' as class 1 and 'Complete Snow Coverage' as class 5.
In 2007 the Governor's Sage-Grouse Conservation Implementation Team identified a set of priorities needed for sage-grouse conservation in Wyoming. One of these priorities was an immediate need for information on the sage-grouse habitats in Wyoming. This database represents the results of the Wyoming Governor's Sage-Grouse Conservation Initiative: Habitat Mapping Project presenting the most complete and timely database possible for Wyoming as of 2009.
Raster file of land use and land cover mapping in the 'Lander' study area at 30m pixel level. Map extent corresponds to 6,490,062 acre area of central Wyoming in the counties Fremont, Natrona, Carbon, Sweetwater, and Hot Springs. A 3km buffer was applied to map extent extending the raster file into the counties of Washakie, Park, Teton, and Sublette.
Raster file of land use and land cover mapping in the 'Rawlins' study area at 30m pixel level. Extent corresponds to the area of the USDI Bureau of Land Management Rawlins Field Office within Sweetwater County, Wyoming plus an average buffer of 5km.
