This data release includes three types of data used in habitat modeling, and predictions from the habitat models. (1) Predictor rasters for proportion urban development within 1-km radius, proportion exurban within 1-km radius, vector ruggedness measure (VRM) within 500-m radius, topographic position index (TPI) within 500-m radius. (2) Twenty-nine null models for space use for 29 different golden eagles. (3) Twenty-nine response variable rasters of eagle locations per cell for 29 golden eagles. (4) A raster for predicted population-level probability of habitat selection and contours for predicted population-level probability of habitat selection and contours.
