    Collection Overview: NCALM Seed. Jonathan Harvey, University of California, Santa Barbara. The survey area is defined by a 45 square kilometer rectangular polygon located along Interstate 40 between Daggett and Needles in the Mojave Desert of California (~110 km east of Daggett). Ground classification was not performed on these data per PI request. The project area had sparse vegetation and extremely steep cliffs and canyons.
