Dataset: Sagebrush MW5k Percent

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Values represent percent of surrounding landscape (5K) are dominated by sagebrush cover. Reclassified LANDFIRE 2013 Existing Vegetation Type by selecting the ecological systems containing sagebrush (Codes: 2080, 2125, 2126, 2220, 2064, 2072, 2079, 2124) to create a binary raster dataset with 1 for the sagebrush land cover types and zero for all others.To incorporate sagebrush lost to fire in fires since the Landsat was flown in 2010 that Landfire was derived from, I used fire perimeters from 2011,2012, & 2013 to reclassify pixels designated as having sagebrush as 0 (not having sagebrush), which assumes a homogenous burn (in reality there may be patches of sagebrush left within a burn perimeter). I then ran focalsum command in spatial analyst using 5 kilometer radius, then divided results by value of percent sagebrush cover that could be expected if all the pixels in a 5k radius contained sagebrush and multiplied by a 100 and reclassified the raster by the % landcover value.
