I used this study area to clip (raster tool is extract by mask) each groups output normalized ES value raster before making the stacked ES rasters. This needed to be done because (1) each groups pixels did not line up and (2) the extent of pixels were different. It is likely that each group will have to use this in their $ value raster to ensure they jive.

Here is a 2001 land use / cover raster that jives with the stacked ES and ES $ rasters (kb 11/29/2010):

These are the final pollen outputs (as of 11/15/2010)

Pollen Cash value (as of 11/23/2010)

Here is the pollen cash value for 20 years created by multiplying the above raster by 18.23 and clipped to the study area


Note: This is sequestration for 1 year. To get a 20-year forward-looking NPV with a 1% discount, multiply by 18.23 (george 11/23)

Below are carbon med and high multiplied by 18.23 and clipped to the study area (kb 11/24/2010):

Stormwater is somewhere in here (Shawn didn't tell me the specific file):

There are two scenarios that I (Shawn) applied:
1)Converting all Agriculture to Urban Developement2)Converting all Forested areas to Urban DevelopmentAfter doing some work to figure out what kind of water yield changes would occur, I multiplied the changes by $2 and $6. Hence, there are 4 files. They are all valid but it was unclear to me which would be the preferred value.

classes.txt under bhc2030 describes the data categories. If we turn 8, 9, 10 to built that would be an estimate of growth in the region.

STACKED ES - I (Kevin) had to get rid of some pixels around the UN boundary to make sure that all pixels lined up on top of each other and that each input raster overlapped the other rasters. The normalized (0-1), biophysical ecosystem service values for carbon storage, nutrient retention, and pollination are included.

BIODIVERSITY: I have redone the biodiversity sampling technique to extract presence/absence per pixel at the 30m resolution. However the two .dbf files are very large and difficult to manipulate.
These two files need to be joined by XY location first on a "super-computer".
