Title Mule Deer and White-tailed Deer GPS Collar Locations
Downloaded 23 times
Description Mule deer and white-tailed deer were captured and fit with GPS-collars within East-Central Alberta. The collars recorded the location of the deer every two hours. These sequential locations were used to construct a step selection function (SSF) model to quantify the habitat selection of deer movements.

Title Step Selection Function Regression Data
Downloaded 12 times
Description The SSF regression data was used to build a Step Selection Function (SSF) model for mule deer and white-tailed deer (two separate models). We used conditional logistic regression to do so. Each line in the database corresponds to a spatial line segment connecting two consecutive GPS-collar locations (aka "step").

Title CWD Risk Model Regression Data
Downloaded 16 times
Description The data set used to build the chronic wasting disease (CWD) risk model. The basis for the data set are mule deer and white-tailed deer harvested by hunters or government sharp-shooters in East-Central Alberta and West-Central Saskatchewan. These deer were tested for CWD. Landscape covariates describe the features surrounding each deer harvested with covariates corresponding to features previously shown to be important for CWD risk and/or deer habitat selection.

Title CWD Surveillance Data from 2000 to 2010
Downloaded 16 times
Description This chronic wasting disease (CWD) surveillance data is the basis for the construction of the CWD risk model. Mule deer and white-tailed deer were harvested by hunters and government sharp-shooters in East-Central Alberta and West-Central Saskatchewan from 2000 to 2010. Deer heads were submitted to a laboratory for testing for the presence of CWD.

Title CWD Surveillance Data in Alberta from 2011 to 2013 for validation
Downloaded 12 times
Description This data was used for validating/evaluating the CWD risk model predictions. Mule deer and white-tailed deer were harvested by hunters in East-Central Alberta from 2000 to 2010. Deer heads were submitted to a laboratory for testing for the presence of CWD.
