The USGS Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center developed a Monarch Relevant Land Cover data set covering the area of Mexico. We used the 2010 land cover data set produced by the tri-national North American Land Change Monitoring System (NALCMS) and supported by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) that depicts year 2010 land cover across North America at 30-meter spatial resolution, and incorporated additional spatially-explicit information to develop this land cover map. Additional sources of information included 2004 railroad data provided by Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geografia and the CEC, 2011 roads data provided by Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geografia, 2017 protected areas data provided by the CEC, and 2006 Mexico municipalities data provided by Sistemas de Informacion Geografica.
