Data supporting paper J. Nowosad and T. F. Stepinski,  Pattern-based segmentation of environment – A new approach to global delineation of ecophysiographic land units. Paper submitted to the Ecological Applications. Use QGIS open source GIS to view and analyze GIS data. GIS data also opens in ArcGIS but color legend needs to be manually assigned.
