On the Ground
- Rangeland management has entered a new era with the accessibility and advancement of satellite-derived maps.
- Maps provide a comprehensive view of rangelands in space and time, and challenge us to think critically about natural variability.
- Here, we advance the practice of using satellite-derived maps with four guiding principles designed to increase end user confidence and thereby accessibility of these data for decision-making.
