GIS40 GIS Coverages Defining the Sample Locations of Konza Consumer Data (1982-present)

Abstract: 

These data show the sampling locations for the consumer datasets at Konza Prairie. Record type 1 defines the starting points for sweep samples of grasshoppers across Konza Prairie (GIS400). These data may be used in conjunction with the sweep sample datasets (CGR02). Record type 2 defines the starting points for sweep samples of grasshoppers across Konza Prairie (GIS401), focusing on grazing impact. These data may be used in conjunction with the sweep sample datasets (CGR02Z). Record type 6 defines the trap locations for small mammal sampling across Konza Prairie (GIS405). These data may be used in conjunction with CSM0X. Record type 11 defines the stream stretches for fish sampling across Konza Prairie (GIS410). These data may be used in conjunction with CFC01.

These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).

Information relevant to the GIS data encoding

Sweep samples were taken for grasshoppers (Acrididae) at one site for each of the 12 Konza Prairie LTER treatments (3 fire treatments x 2 soils x 2 grazing treatments) in June, August, and September. This data may be used in conjunction with the Sweep samples for grasshoppers (CGRXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.Horizontal Coordinate System Name:Transverse Mercator
