Images created from the data sets provided online showing extent of missing data. The color red indicates new data collected for this study, black indicates existing data, white indicates missing data. Note, if you choose to display these in your browser (rather than downloading them and using Preview or Photoshop to view them), you should be aware that they are very wide but not very tall, so you will have to zoom your browser to see anything (unless you have really good eyes).
