This dataset is an extract from the GlobCover 2009 land cover map, covering Central and South America. The GlobCover 2009 land cover map is derived by an automatic and regionally-tuned classification of a time series of global MERIS (MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer) FR mosaics for the year 2009. The global land cover map counts 22 land cover classes defined with the United Nations (UN) Land Cover Classification System (LCCS). For more information on the GlobCover project, see http://ionia1.esrin.esa.int/ Note on display: class 210: Water Bodies is set to "transparent" to improve display in the Data Basin map. Within the extract's extent, no data were removed from the original dataset.

Cruise ship ports in the Caribbean and intensity of visitation. This dataset was created on 24th April 2003 and represents all cruise ports in the Wider Caribbean and the number of calls by cruise ships that are scheduled between 1st May 2003 and 1st may 2004. Cruise ships alter their ports of call from year to year and there are other destinations that have not been included in this dataset, as no ships are scheduled.

Fish collections made at Buck Island Reef National Monument with the ichthyocide rotenone in 2001 at 58 stations followed by 10 days each in April 2011 and January 2012 surveying poorly sampled shoreline habitats with rotenone and clove oil and inland streams with seine.

This data set represents the extent, approximate location and type of wetlands and deepwater habitats in the United States and its Territories. These data delineate the areal extent of wetlands and surface waters as defined by Cowardin et al. (1979). Certain wetland habitats are excluded from the National mapping program because of the limitations of aerial imagery as the primary data source used to detect wetlands. These habitats include seagrasses or submerged aquatic vegetation that are found in the intertidal and subtidal zones of estuaries and near shore coastal waters. Some deepwater reef communities (coral or tuberficid worm reefs) have also been excluded from the inventory. These habitats, because of their...

Puerto Rico Barrios (Boroughs), or sub-municipal divisions.

In the 1980s, The Puerto RIcan legislature designated a "greenbelt of agricultural lands to create a buffer zone around the El Yunque Forest." The purpose of the buffer zone was to provide a transitional area from the Forest to the land outside, so that urbanization and its impacts would not encroach upon the Forest. Since then, the buffer zone has decreased in size as development increased. The decrease in the buffer zone is due to government zoning exceptions, the result of pressure from developers, and some illegal development. A USDA Forest Service report indicates that El Yunque Forest ecosystem is increasingly at risk as urbanization in the buffer zone increases. El Yunque's ability to support wildlife will...

HUC-14 Watershedsd for the Island of St. John. Because of the size of the USVI, most planning is done at HUC-14 level.

This inventory was originally created by Harp and others (2016) describing the landslides triggered by the M 7.0 Haiti earthquake that occurred on 12 January 2010 at 21:53:10 UTC. Care should be taken when comparing with other inventories because different authors use different mapping techniques. This inventory also could be associated with other earthquakes such as aftershocks or triggered events. Please check the author methods summary and the original data source for more information on these details and to confirm the viability of this inventory for your specific use. With the exception of the data from USGS sources, the inventory data and associated metadata were not acquired by the U.S. Geological Survey...

Aboveground woody biomass carbon dataset for the Latin American tropics and the Caribbean (~500m spatial resolution) generated by Woods Hole Research Center scientists and their collaborators. The Conservation Biology Institute created a continuous dataset by mosaicing national level biomass data provided by WHRC and converting it to carbon using a coefficient of 0.5 (Chave et al. 2005). The dataset was then converted from Float to Interger data type to minimize file size.The pixel values are in megagrams (Mg) of Aboveground Live Woody Carbon per Hectare (Mg/Ha).WHRC researchers produced national level maps showing the amount and spatial distribution of aboveground live woody vegetation biomass (for the period...
