GeoTiff 30 meter raster of 2006 riparian vegetation within the Colorado River Basin. This map was created from a random forest model developed in Google Earth Engine.
A raster that depicts modeled riparian vegetation in 2006. Training data were collected in Google Earth Engine using National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery. Presence and absence riparian vegetation locations were ocularly estimated within Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ecoregion III boundaries within the Colorado River Basin. Random forests models were then developed at each ecoregion using Landsat composites and associated vegetation indices. Results were mosaicked to create a continuous raster across the Colorado River Basin.
