EnviroAtlas - Acres of crops that have no nearby pollinator habitat for the Conterminous United States

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

This dataset is a summary of crop acres without nearby pollinator habitat. Pollination habitat here is defined as trees (fruit, nut, deciduous, and evergreen). Crops are only those that either benefit from or require pollinators in order to produce or improve crop production. The maximum distance a tree habitat could be from the crop pixel was 2.8 km. If the crop had no tree habitat within this distance (euclidean) then it was selected as needing habitat. The total areas of crops without nearby pollinator habitat was then summed by 12 digit HUCS. This metric is a measure of demand for pollinators in order to improve or produce crop yields. This dataset was produced by the US EPA to support research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas. EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas) allows the user to interact with a web-based, easy-to-use, mapping application to view and analyze multiple ecosystem services for the contiguous United States. The dataset is available as downloadable data (https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/EnviroAtlas) or as an EnviroAtlas map service. Additional descriptive information about each attribute in this dataset can be found in its associated EnviroAtlas Fact Sheet (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas/enviroatlas-fact-sheets).
