Data: Ecosystems

We encourage visitors to read the Supplementary Online Materials for detailed information pertaining to the creation of these data layers
If you're an ArcGIS 10 user, you'll need to build pyramids to see these datasets, or zoom in to the dataset scale: ESRI changed the format for Pyramids, and these files use the older format. After recreating the pyramids, the datasets should display as expected.
