* When authors make use of data they should cite both the data set and the scientific publication, if available. Such a practice gives credit to data set producers and advances principles of transparency and reproducibility. Please visit the data citations page for details. Users who would like to choose to format the citation(s) for this dataset using a myriad of alternate styles can copy the DOI number and paste it into Crosscite's website.

The data are available in tabular form in CSV and JSON formats in a single zip file (~1.9 GB), and vector form in Shapefile (.shp) format in a single zip file (~1.1 GB). The lat/long coordinates in the .csv/.json are unprojected WGS 84 geographic coordinate system (GCS). The .shp files are project using EPSG:4326 (WGS84) coordinate reference system (CRS). Note that several columns for the .shp and .csv files had to be converted to string format, and then will have to be converted back to lists and/or float data for analysis.
