Covariate Data

There are over 150 national rasters representing the SCORPAN factors across climate, parent material, biology, relief, soil and location.

Covariate rasters (as geotif files) are available as full national mosaics or as smaller tiled sections across the whole of the continent. Tiles and mosaics are available at 90m (3 arcsec) resolution and 30m (1 arcsec) resolution. For convenience the individual tiles have been grouped into chunks and compressed in 7zip format. The tiles are also available as Principal Components (PCA). Details of the PCA can be found here
