San Pedro River Basin Data Browser Report
Boykin, K., S. Schrader, R. Guy, W. Kepner, A. Ernst, A. el Sadek, AND W. Yee. San Pedro River Basin Data Browser Report. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-12/550, 2012.
Acquisition of primary spatial data and database development are initial features of any type of landscape assessment project. They provide contemporary land cover and the ancillary datasets necessary to establish reference condition and develop alternative future scenarios that serve as input variables for various hydrological, habitat, economic, and natural resource models. The purpose of this database is to provide a long-term record keeping (archiving) system with easy public access to an array of spatial data for the entire San Pedro River basin (U.S./Mexico). We collected spatial and tabular data that were freely available on the Internet; processed data to create seamless datasets; and created land cover datasets at the Ecological System thematic level and National Land Cover Dataset thematic level using Classification and Regression Tree (CART) analysis.
The purpose of this database is to provide a long-term record keeping (archiving) system with easy public access to an array of spatial data for the entire San Pedro River basin (U.S./Mexico).
