Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP) Updated:04/2023

Data at your fingertips

Fast, powerful, and free, the Rangeland Analysis Platform is an innovative online tool that quickly visualizes and analyzes vegetation data for the United States. Launch the app to examine trends at pasture, ranch, watershed, or broader scales. Datasets include:

Continuous vegetation cover: see abundance and distribution of perennial or annual herbaceous, shrubs, trees, and bare ground
Annual aboveground biomass: see how much and where production has changed over the years
16-day aboveground biomass (including current year): see how production has changed within the growing season

RAP was developed by the University of Montana in partnership with Working Lands for Wildlife of the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the USDA ARS.
