Abstract

The data in this resource represent annual outdoor water use (i.e., irrigation rates) for the City and County of Denver at the 2010 census block group scale from 1995-2018. The resource contains two files: a CSV containing irrigation rates and a shapefile containing the spatial extent of each block group.

Further explanation of the remote sensing-based method used to model these data and the data themselves can be found in and cited as:
Blount, K., J. Wolfand, C.D. Bell, N.K. Ajami, and T.S. Hogue (2021). Satellites to sprinklers: Assessing spatiotemporal patterns of outdoor water use using remote sensing. Water Resources Research. doi: 10.1029/2020WR027587.

The data in this resource represent annual outdoor water use (i.e., irrigation rates) for the City and County of Denver at the 2010 census block group scale from 1995-2018. 

The resource contains two files: (1) a CSV containing irrigation rates and (2) a shapefile containing the spatial extent of each block group. 

(1) CB_irr-rates.csv
This file contains the annual growing season irrigation rates (mm) for each census block group in Denver. The first row contains a header. The first column contains the OBJECTID that relates these data to the shapefile. Each subsequent column contains the outdoor water use for each year from 1995 to 2018 (in mm), and each row represents a different block group.  

(2) CensusBlockGroups_2010_Denver.zip
This zip file contains all files and attribute data for the shapefile of 2010 Denver census block groups (n=481). The polygons for each block group can be related to their irrigation rates using the OBJECTID attribute. These data represent a subset of the shapefile of all Colorado block groups (2010) obtained from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (https://demography.dola.colorado.gov/gis/gis-data/#gis-data).

The data in the CSV can be related to their spatial extent in the shapefile using the OBJECTID attribute. This attributed is labeled 'OBJECTID' in the CSV [first column] and 'OBJECTID' in the attribute table of the shapefile.
