This dataset includes modeled outputs for structural connectivity and trends in connectivity patterns in the sagebrush biome of the United States at 270-meter resolution. Connectivity was calculated using an omnidirectional circuit-based algorithm, with sources, targets, and conductance based on sagebrush fractional component from the RCMAP sagebrush products for 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020. Cumulative current density was used to represent connectivity and normalized cumulative current density represented relative flow patterns. We also calculated rasters to represent linear trend in connectivity class, relative flow, and the consistency of connectivity classes.
