LiDAR_Metrics.gdb \Data ESRI ArcGIS geodatabase containing 24 georeferenced raster digital TIF files of LiDAR derived absolute (d) and relative change (Rd) for: mean vegetation height (MHT), vegetation height standard deviation (SD), vegetation height skewness (SKW), percent of returns < 1-meter (S1), percent of returns ≥ 1-meter and ≤ 5-meter (S2), percent of returns > 5-meter and ≤ 8-meter (S3), percent of returns > 8-meter and ≤ 20-meter (S4), percent of returns > 20-meter (S5), mean surface fuel height (MSFH), percent canopy cover (CC), canopy relief ratio (CRR), canopy density (CD).
Spectral_Indices.gdb \Data ESRI ArcGIS geodatabase containing 21 georeferenced raster digital TIF files of spectral change indices derived from Landsat, including: change in Landsat bands (blue [dB], green [dG], red [dR], near infrared [dNIR], shortwave infrared 1 [dSWIR1], and shortwave infrared 2 [dSWIR2]), delta normalized burn ratio (dNBR), relative delta normalized burn ratio (RdNBR), delta normalized differenced vegetation index (dNDVI), delta mid-infrared bi-spectral index (dMIRBI), delta char soil index (dCSI), delta soil adjusted vegetation index (dSAVI); change in tasseled cap brightness (dTCB), greenness (dTCG), and wetness (dTCW), change in the first three principle components of the change band (dC1, dC2, dC3), delta normalized differenced water index (dNDWI), delta band 7/4 ratio (d74), and delta band 7/5 ratio (d75).
mask.tif \Data Georeferenced raster digital TIF file identifying areas that should be masked from spectral indices due to water/snow interfering with change analysis.
prefire_condition.tif \Data Georeferenced raster digital TIF file containing pre-fire condition with regards to mountain pine beetle (MPB) and forest management (MGMT), as well as whether an area was burned.
