Adirondack Research Invasive Species Mapping


This data set contains interpolated lake characteristics data of twelve lakes, including depth, substrate hardness, and vegetation presence. These data can be useful for calculating the probability of occurrence of other biological organisms that have habitat preferences related to water depth and substrate. More information about the survey methodology is available here.
