ArcGIS Files for Senator Beck Basin Study Area

We have created three GIS data layers showing

  1. Senator Beck Basin Study Area watershed boundary,
  2. Study plot locations, and
  3. Transect end points for the baseline vegetation monitoring program.

Five additional GIS data groups are compiled from publicly available data. Those groups include:

  1. 10 m raster grids of digital elevation models (DEM),
  2. Vegetation coverage,
  3. Geology,
  4. Topography and place names, and
  5. Air photos.
 All GIS data are in ArcGIS file format (created with ArcGIS 10.1). Please contact Chris Landry ( for inquiries.
