The Energy Footprint Model simulates the footprint of pads and roads given user-provided alternative build-out designs across southwestern Wyoming. Model results can be used to compare the effects of designs on biophysical properties, such as surface disturbance, wildlife populations, and wildlife habitat. Data inputs can be found here. Model source code and executable can be found here: https://my.usgs.gov/bitbucket/projects/WLCI/repos/energy_footprint_model.

Wind energy generation causes transformation of landscapes as new roads, pads, and transmission lines are constructed. We mapped, quantified, and analyzed the effects of facilities' geographic context on road networks and changes in landscape patterns by digitizing the footprints of 39 wind facilities and the surrounding land cover using high-resolution imagery of before and after construction. These data were used in understanding how new facilities change the amount of undeveloped land and changes in metrics of landscape patterns.
