Title Spatial distribution of grassland and sparsely vegetated land in Central Asia from 2000 to 2014
Downloaded 4 times
Description Raster data for annual spatial distribution of grassland and sparsely vegetated land in targeted area of Central Asia over the period 2000-2014. The data was generated by using standard deviation of Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) during thermal growing season (EVITGS). The resolution is 463 m, and the coordinate system is Sinusoidal. 0 and 1 mean grassland and sparsely vegetated land, respectively.

Title Spatial distribution of persistent grassland zone (PGZ), transition zone (TZ), and persistent desert zone (PDZ) in Central Asia
Downloaded 1 time
Description Raster data for spatial distribution of persistent grassland zone (PGZ), transition zone (TZ), and persistent desert zone (PDZ) in Central Asia. The resolution is 463 m, and the coordinate system is Sinusoidal. 1, 2, and 3 mean persistent grassland zone (PGZ), transition zone (TZ), and persistent desert zone (PDZ), respectively.

Title Spatial patterns of Linear Regression trend and Mann-Kendall trend of Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) during thermal growing season (EVITGS) in Central Asia
Downloaded 2 times
Description The raster layers include spatial distribution of Linear Regression trend, Mann-Kendall trend of Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), Linear Regression-based P value, and Mann-Kendall-based P value during thermal growing season (EVITGS) in Central Asia over the period 2000-2014. The values of raster layers are the slope of EVITGS change. The scaling factor is 0.0001. The resolution is 463 m, and the coordinate system is Sinusoidal.
