Abstract:
This data publication contains twenty-four GeoTIFF files for four significant geographic areas (SGAs) in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The extent of the SGAs are defined within the America’s Longleaf Range-wide Conservation Plan for Longleaf (2009). A raster grid file is provided for the extent of each SGA within each state and shows the amount of pine basal area per acre (BAA), the amount of all species BAA, the amount of pine trees per acre (TPA), the amount of all species TPA, dominant forest type classification, visually identified classification, the probability of an area being composed primarily of longleaf pine BAA, and the probability of an area being composed primarily of regeneration. These raster surfaces were created using machine learning relationships between FIA plot information (2010-2015) and NAIP imagery (2013) and are intended to be used to help quantify existing conditions of forested ecosystems and help prioritize longleaf restoration efforts across the four SGAs.
