Low-cost UAS platforms to quantify and predict post-fire recovery in arid shrublands

The data incorporate the geospatial information associated with the project, including 10 different wildfire sites in south-western Idaho, USA burnt between 1996-2015. Each wildfire site is approximately 2ha in area, located at the intersection of the wildfire line, spanning the burnt and unburnt parts of the landscape. The data includes three parts: (i) wildfire lines within each site digitized using GoogleEarth historic imagery; (ii) the locations of 723 points for 25 m2 plot centroids, randomly distributed within each site; (iii) individual plant geolocations for >23,000 observations mapped on the landscape with ~3 cm accuracy, including plant functional group, species, and size category.
