North Temperate Lakes LTER Wisconsin Estimated Secchi Depths

Abstract
This data set contains the estimated Secchi depth (water clarity) measurements for 8645 Wisconsin lakes, derived from Landsat-5 and -7 satellite imagery acquired during the 1999-2001 time period. For details of the process used to create these data, see: Chipman, J. W., T. M. Lillesand, J. E. Schmaltz, J. E. Leale, and M. J. Nordheim. 2004. &ldquo;Mapping Lake Water Clarity with Landsat Images in Wisconsin, USA.&rdquo; Invited paper, Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing, Special Issue on Remote Sensing and Resource Management in Nearshore and Inland Waters, 30(1):1-7. Polygons for each lake were taken from the WDNR 1:24,000-scale Hydrography GIS data set (version 2). Several existing fields were deleted, and new ones were added.

North Temperate Lakes LTER Yahara Lakes District Wildland Urban Interface

Abstract
The Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) is the area where houses meet or intermingle with undeveloped wildland vegetation. This makes the WUI a focal area for human-environment conflicts such as wildland fires, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and biodiversity decline. Using geographic information systems (GIS), we integrated U.S. Census and USGS National Land Cover Data, to map the Federal Register definition of WUI (Federal Register 66:751, 2001). These data are useful within a GIS for mapping and analysis at national, state, and local levels.

Purpose
<p>To provide a spatially detailed national assessment of the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) across the coterminous U.S. to support inquiries into the effects of housing growth on the environment, and to inform both national policy and local land management concerning the WUI and associated issues.</p>
