Inverse Distance Weighting

This is a raster map (created by the inverse distance weighting technique) using NASA SRTM data as an elevation source. I've used red panda (Ailurus fulgens) presence/absence data collected by my colleague Tanushree; the scale is a gradient from white (high probability of presence) to black (low probability of presence). The underlying layer is a Landsat false-colour image.

There's no scale on this map because the skewed perspective means that the scale increases towards the horizon, and decreases towards the observer.
