spatial-ecology data repository

spatial-ecology virtual machines comes with template data to practice scripting routines. During the training we are going provide different exercises based on the following datasets:

Raster data


Habitat suitability map of European common beech Fagus sylvatica (Fabaceae) according to different climatic scenarios - 1km res. - EPSG:3035 - GeoTIF format - European extent


Geo-morphological maps

This layers are derived from the SRTM digital elevation model - Italian extent - 1km res - EPSG:3035 - grass format stored @ ~/ost4sem/grassdb/europe/Vmodel/cellhd/ - grass raster format

 pr200ita =  minimum altitude within each sq km
 pr201ita =  maximum altitude within each sq km
 pr202ita =  mean altitudes 
 pr203ita =  altitude standard deviation
 pr204ita =  slope 
 pr205ita =  dominant orientation (north, south, east, west)
