Abstract:
This data publication contains nine GeoTIFF files for the Fort Stewart-Altamaha significant geographic area (SGA) in Georgia. The extent of the SGA is defined within the America’s Longleaf Range-wide Conservation Plan for Longleaf (2009). A raster grid file is provided for the extent of the SGA and shows the amount of pine basal area per acre (BAA), the amount of hardwood species BAA, the amount of pine trees per acre (TPA), the amount of hardwood species TPA, dominant forest type classification, the probability of an area being composed primarily of regeneration, the probability of longleaf pine being present in an area, a raster of pine species presence or absence and a raster of hardwood species presence or absence. These raster surfaces were created using machine learning relationships between USDA Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plot information (2010-2015) and normalized Landsat imagery (2013-2015) and are intended to be used to help quantify existing conditions of forested ecosystems and help prioritize longleaf restoration efforts across the four SGAs.
