Process_Description:
Outbreaks were converted to raster coverages from digital vector maps for Washington & Oregon. Recent Maps were dgitized from aerial sketch maps at scales of 1:126.720 (Oregon) 1:100,000 (Washington). The resoluion for the western spruce budworm defoliation maps in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana was set at 5km, and that for the mountain pine beetle outbreak maps across the same area was set at 2km.

Process_Description:
Maps of Budworm defoliation and mountain pine bettle outbreaks for the states of Idaho and Montana for the years 1977-1996 and 1980-1995, respectively, were developed from maps published in annual pest conditions reports at scales of 1:2,000,000 and 1:3,500,000, respectively. The resoluion for the western spruce budworm defoliation maps in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana was set at 5km, and that for the mountain pine beetle outbreak maps across the same area was set at 2km.
