Honey mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa Torr.) invasion can negatively impact grazing capacity, spatial livestock distribution, and forage production in Chihuahuan Desert rangelands. High spatial resolution remote sensing data can be used to develop maps of shrub encroachment for arid rangelands. The objective of this study was to use high resolution satellite imagery to map changes in honey mesquite abundance and to evaluate honey mesquite impacts at the Chihuahuan Desert Rangeland Research Center (CDRRC) in south-central New Mexico, USA. QuickBird Ortho-ready satellite image with spatial resolution of 2.4 m in multispectral bands and 0.6 m in panchromatic band was acquired for the study area on May 19, 2009.
