Data for forecasting buffelgrass distribution with global distribution data, local data, and physiological information

May 31, 2018

This data bundle contains some of the inputs, all of the processing instructions and all outputs from two VisTrails/SAHM workflows, one creating a global habitat suitability model for buffelgrass and another creating a habitat suitability model for buffelgrass in Saguaro National Park, AZ. The bundle documentation files are: 1) '_archive_bundle_metadata.xml' (this file) which contains FGDC metadata describing the archive bundle. 2) 'modelSelectionCV_MakeAbsPntsFilt100_2.csv' containing the field data used as inputs for the Saguaro National Park model. 3) '_archive_raster_inputs.csv' a list of the raster inputs that were used to generate these model results. These are not included in the archive bundle due to size constraints but are identified in this file as well as the metadata document. 4) '_archive_workflow_Final_model_output.vt' where 'Final_model_output' is the name of the history node for the global model and 'SNP final model' is the name of the history node for the Saguaro National Park model being archived in this bundle. Contains a VisTrails/SAHM workflow document which contains the workflow that was used to create these outputs. 5) '_archive_workflow_Final_model_output.vt' where Final_model_output is the name of the history node being archive in this bundle. Contains a VisTrails/SAHM workflow document which contains the workflow that was used to create these outputs. The remaining data files are the spatial and diagnostic model outputs.
