Habitat richness influences and even determines biological diversity. Assessment dataset of plant habitat suitability could help us to understand how to keep the region sustainable development. Based on the data integration among the ASTER-DEM, a series of local maps, and the in situ data, the assessment dataset of habitat suitability in the Upper reaches of Min River, China was developed. The dataset is consisted of terrain elevation and slope data; meteorology data, soil and vegetation data, as well as the habitat suitability index and the assessment data. The dataset is archived in the .tiff format with the compressed data size of 15.1MB. The analysis resolute based on the dataset was published at the Journal of Mountain Science, No. 3, Vol.12, 2015.
