DATA PROCESSING

Data Processing (1)

General Explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset

Using the vegetation data from 6th and 7th Natural Environment Conservation Fundamental Observation data (Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan) and potential usage database of woody plants (Kurokawa et al. in preparation), we calculated potential number of usage of woody plants for each observation unit. Climate data (Mesh climate data of National Numerical Information by Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan) and elevation (10m digital elevation model in Fundamental Map Information by Geospatial Information Authority of Japan) were assigned based on coordinates of the observation units by GIS. Potential number of usage was modeled by climate, elevation and vegetation of the observation units. Using this model and vegetation map at ca. 1996 (The 5th Natural Environment Conservation Fundamental Observation vegetation map by Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan), potential number of usage of woody species was spatially interpolated all over the Japan.
