Desolation Wilderness: data from 1997-1998 visitor response to fees, fee demonstration project

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains responses to a 1997-1998 survey of 634 overnight visitors and 789 day-use visitors to Desolation Wilderness in the Sierra Nevada of northern California. This mailback survey addressed visitors' knowledge regarding level of fees, fee administration method, and potential uses of fees. It was a systematic sample of overnight and day-use permits.

Data from a 1972 visitor survey in the Desolation Wilderness to determine baseline visitor characteristics, and preferences for wilderness conditions and experience

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This package contains baseline data for visitor characteristics, activities and preferences collected as part of a 1972 survey of visitors to the Desolation Wilderness in the Sierra Nevada of northern California. Permit data and mailback surveys were used to provide the data from a systematic sample of visitors with the required use permit (permit holders).

Public purpose recreation marketing data: public and public lands relationships in a 1999 study of Oregon and Washington

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
In 1999 a case study was conducted to test the application of a marketing approach to public land management. A region-wide revision in the existing fee program in the Pacific Northwest region of the Forest Service, specifically Oregon and Washington, provided an opportunity to test this application (Borrie et al. 2002).

Current and future plant hardiness zones for the conterminous United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes raster digital files containing plant hardiness zones of current climate (1981–2010) and future climates (2070–2099; CanESM2, GFDL-ESM2G, and HadGEM2-ES general circulation models at representative concentration pathway 8.5) in the conterminous United States. Plant hardiness zones represent the coldest day of the year, averaged over 30 years.

Digitized white-tailed deer densities for the continental United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes vector digital data files containing white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) densities during 1982, 1994-1999, and 2001-2005 in the continental United States. Using object-based image analysis followed by random forests classification, we rapidly digitized choropleth maps of white-tailed deer densities, allowing access to deer density information stored in images.

Pyromes of the conterminous United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains a vector dataset (shapefile) depicting areas of relatively homogeneous contemporary fire regimes, based on an analysis of historical wildfire activity in the conterminous United States (CONUS) from 1992-2013 (Short 2015). The product was generated for use in landscape fire simulation for national wildfire hazard mapping and risk assessment, but should have other planning and research applications.

Social conditions, visitor flow & travel simulation model for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Social conditions and visitor flows on the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) on the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota were monitored during the seasons of greatest visitor use (May-September) in 2010 and 2011. In 2010, four spatially defined areas within BWCAW were observed by technicians and both the number of encounters and typical visitor behavior were approximated.

Gila National Forest Plan Revision: 2016 Q-methodology data on public and manager perspectives of ecosystem services and drivers of change

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
In June of 2016, data were collected from both the interested public (122 people over the course of five public meetings) and public land managers (50 managers from the forest and district level) on the Gila National Forest, southwestern New Mexico.

Modeled 100-year flood zones for Front Range National Forests

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains a vector digital file of modeled 100-year flood zones for Front Range National Forests in Colorado and a tabular digital file containing flows rates (cubic feet per second) for different return intervals. Flow rates are based on 1994-2018 stream flows, but flows are not stationary and will change with changing precipitation patterns.

Digitized white-tailed deer densities from 1950 to 2005 for the southeastern United States

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains vector digital files of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) densities during 1950, 1970, 1982, and 2001-2005 in the southeastern United States.
