Abstract Seven Geographic Information System GIS layers comprise this dataset intended for understanding the Marco Polo argali habitat in the southeastern Tajikistan Pamirs 37°33′ N, 74°09′ E. Extensive remote sensing habitat data processing and field data analysis of the Marco Polo sheep study area have yielded these layers that are now available online to download and for use by other researchers interested in studying the argali patterns and habitat suitability in the southeastern Tajik Pamirs. It is important to note that the layers were generated using a 30-m Landsat ETM image and field data from 2012. View Full-Text
