The dataset of vegetation resilience in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area (2000-2018) was developed based on GLASS LAI, GlobeLand 30, DEM, and data on geological disaster, integrated with critical moderating model. The dataset includes the following data in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area from 2000 to 2018: (1) 500 m raster data of average GLASS LAI; (2) average GLASS LAI in each county; (3) change rate of GLASS LAI in each county; (4) KPSS test results of LAI residuals; (5) average time autocorrelation in each county; (6) land use area and proportion in each county; (7) comparison data of Case Model and Critical Slowing Down Model. The dataset is archived in .shp, .tif and .xlsx, formats, and consists of 14 data files with data size of 8.39 MB (Compressed to 1 file with 3.06 MB). The analysis paper based on the dataset was published in Acta Ecologica Sinica, Vol. 43, No. 12, 2023.
