Process_Description:
Most of the defoliation maps were developed from maps published in Hardy et al. (1986), which included annual maps of spruce budworm defoliation during 1938-1980 in Southeastern Canada and the Northeastern U.S. at a scale of 1:11,000,000. Because maps were unvaailable for some states and provinces early in the series, we only used maps from 1954 to 1980.

Process_Description:
Maps for the period 1981-1988 were assembled from defoliation maps published in the series of annual insect and disease conditions reports of individual provinces and states, including Manitoba at a scale of 1:10,000,000 (e.g., Cerezke and Emond 1989), Minnesota at 1:4,400,000, Ontario at 1:7,000,000 (e.g., Howse and Applejohn 1988), Quebec at 1:6,000,000 (e.g., Bordeleau at al. 1989), Maine at 1:2,000,000 (e.g., Trial 1989), the Maritime Provinces at 1:4,000,000 (e.g., Magasi 1989), and Newfoundland and Labrador at 1:3,500,000 and 1:20,000,000 respectively (e.g., Clarke and Carew 1987). The resolution for the Eastern Spruce Budworm was set at 5km.
