This resource is a repository of the map products for the Annual Irrigation Maps - Republican River Basin (AIM-RRB) dataset produced in Deines et al. 2017. It also provides the training and test point datasets used in the development and evaluation of the classifier algorithm. The maps cover a 141,603 km2 area in the northern High Plains Aquifer in the United States centered on the Republican River Basin, which overlies portions of Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska. AIM-RRB provides annual irrigation maps for 18 years (1999-2016). Please see Deines et al. 2017 for full details.

Map Metadata
Map products are projected in EPSG:5070 - CONUS Albers NAD83
Raster value key:
0 = Not irrigated
1 = Irrigated
254 = NoData, masked by urban, water, forest, or wetland land used based on the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD)
255 = NoData, outside of study boundary

Training and test point data sets supply coordinates in latitude/longitude (WGS84). Column descriptions for each file can be found below in the "File Metadata" tab when the respective file is selected in the content window.
