The Japanese serow (Naemorhedus crispus) is an endemic mammal of Japan, and designated as a Japanese simple of natural environment. We produced a total of 319 point records of Japanese serow occurrence (160 presence records and 159 absence records) with data of 14 potential predictors. This dataset is from one published research paper by Doko T. and Chen W. 2013. “The geographical distribution and habitat use of Japanese serow (Naemorhedus crispus) in the Fuji-Tanzawa region, Japan”. Journal of Environmental Information Science 41: 53-62 and Doko T.’s Master Thesis 2007. “Modeling of species geographic distribution for assessing present needs for the ecological networks: case study of Fuji region and Tanzawa region, Japan”, ITC: Enschede. The potential predictors are altitude, slope, annual precipitation, annual max temperature, annual min temperature, distance to rivers, distance to all roads, distance to highways, distance to general roads, distance to paths and stone steps, distance to wide roads (> 13 m), distance to narrow roads (≦13 m), the NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), and the vegetation cover types at the vegetation community level. The data formats are in CSV format (.csv), Google Earth (.kmz), and Arc/Info (.shp) formats. The projected datum is the Japanese Geodetic Datum 2000. The spatial resolution of raster data used to produce the dataset was 50 m spatial resolution. The data size is 43 KB for CSV (.csv), 29 KB for Google Earth (.kmz), and 249 KB for Arc/Info (.shp) format.
