Data and Tools

Science Datasets

The data collected and the techniques used by USGS scientists should conform to or reference national and international standards and protocols if they exist and when they are relevant and appropriate. For datasets of a given type, and if national or international metadata standards exist, the data are indexed with metadata that facilitates access and integration.

Shapefiles and Historical Aerial Photographs, Little Missouri River, 1939-2003

The data archive contains the aerial photographs and channel delineations used in our analysis. The images have been geo-referenced to the 1995 digital orthophoto quarter quadrangles as described by Miller and Friedman (2009). The channel delineations for all photo years (including 2003) and the delineation of the outer flood-plain boundary are stored as shapefiles.

Provenance, classification, and abundance of RNA sequence fragments used to assess virus infections in honey bees, Apis mellifera

This dataset was used to assess the relative occurrence and titer of Deformed wing virus (DWV) and Varroa destructor virus 1 (VDV) in public RNA-seq accessions of honey bee using a rapid, kmer-based approach. The data highlight the utility of high-throughput sequencing to monitor viral polymorphisms and statistically test biological predictors of titer.

Cheatgrass mapping in Squirrel Creek Wildfire, WY in 2014

This data bundle contains some of the inputs, all of the processing instructions and all outputs from two VisTrails/SAHM workflow. These models specifically include field data of locations with >40% cover of cheatgrass (presence) and <40% cover of cheatgrass (absence). Predictors included rasters derived from LandSat 8 imagery or from a digital elevation model.
