These datasets depict the historical habitat types and channel alignment of central Laguna de Santa Rosa and surrounding tributaries, representing average dry-season conditions prior to substantial Euro-American modification (~late 1700s-late 1800s). The data were also used to compare historical and current channel lengths as well as wetland and riparian extents.

The study area encompasses approximately 13 km2 (5 mi2 ) in the central portion of the Laguna de Santa Rosa to the east of Sebastopol (Fig. 1B in the report). It extends from Guerneville Road on the north to approximately 7 km (4.5 mi) south.

These datasets accompany the descriptive report.
