The deciduous forest dataset is the result of queries to forest cover data conducted on a forest district by forest district basis. The EKCP study area spans 3 forest districts: All of Cranbrook and Invermere FDs, and part of Golden FD. In Cranbrook and Golden data for all canopy layers in the forest cover data bases (layers 1-3, and silviculture and veteran layers) was available. In the case of Cranbrook only the rank1 layer was available. Items _rnk1pct and _rnk1cls are derived from the rank 1 layer in all FDs; items _other_total are the total area in other layers, available for Cranbrook and Golden.
