  2. The data in these files was collected to validate the results of the aforementioned maxent model. The data were collected in a hierarchical sampling scheme: six randomly determinded unintersecting 9 km * 9 km landscape windows were chosen for sampling. From each window, three samples were taken. One sample from conservation areas, one sample from the "best" 10 % of forests as determined by the maxent model excluding conservation areas and one random sample. Not all windows contained conservation areas, and not all areas were accessible (islands, for example). In addition a few areas were skipped due to time constraints.

The sampled points are identified by their lanscape window (suuralue), their sample (otos) and their sample number (mittauspiste).
