SAGEMAP - Project Data

 We have GIS data used in the following projects/publications available for download:
  • Teetering on the edge or too late? Conservation and research issues for the avifauna of sagebrush habitats
    A review the threats facing birds in sagebrush habitats to emphasize the urgency for conservation and research actions, and synthesize existing information that forms the foundation for recommended research directions.

  • Current Distribution of Sagebrush and Associated Vegetation in the Columbia Basins
    This regional landcover dataset was produced using decision tree classification and other techniques to model landcover. Multi-season satellite imagery (Landsat ETM+, 1999-2003) and digital elevation model (DEM) derived datasets (e.g. elevation, landform, aspect, etc.) were utilized to derive rule sets for the various landcover classes.

  • Range-wide Conservation Assessment of Greater Sage-grouse and Sagebrush Habitats
    This is the first range-wide assessment of greater sage-grouse using the vast amount of population data collected over the past 60 years, habitat information spanning the last 100 years, and literature dating back 200 years.
