Previous vegetation mapping project has areas along the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma along the Red River where data was missing (gaps) or where overlaps contained contradictory mapped types (overlaps). These areas were corrected with this product. Gaps were corrected using new image objects attributed with landcover from the previous products and new soils data available from NRCS (gSSURGO). Overlaps were corrected by selecting one of the mapped types identified by previous products based on the state boundary provided by the U. S. Census Bureau (500k).

Grassland conservation is a priority within the GCP LCC. We held a series of meetings and conference calls with partners to identify areas of need both conceptually and geographically. Based on the meeting outcomes, we identified specific tasks that could be accomplished within our scope, including development of datasets and demonstration of a freely available decision support software tool (DST): NatureServe Vista. We generated more than 30 new datasets and posted more than 35 datasets on the GCP LCC Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA). Data were provided for three geographic regions that corresponded to the areas of interest of different partners: the entire LCC, Oklahoma only, and two, 2-county areas in the Coastal...

We worked with state and federal partners to (1) edge match the Oklahoma and Texas Ecological Systems (ECS) datasets with a focus on the Texas and Oklahoma panhandle region, (2) complete an enduring features (ecological site type; geophysical setting) dataset for Oklahoma, and (3) create a process for updating the Ecological Systems (ES) map and dataset by detecting land cover change and modeling the revised ES types. Staff from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) collected field data in support of edge matching, and to help better characterize and classify the ES types in the panhandle region of Texas and adjacent Oklahoma.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
