The Best Management Practices Statistical Estimator (BMPSE) was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Project Delivery and Environmental Review to provide planning-level information about the performance of structural best management practices for decision makers, planners, and highway engineers to assess and mitigate possible adverse effects of highway and urban runoff on the Nation's receiving waters (Granato 2013, 2014; Granato and others, 2021a,b). The BMPSE was used to calculate statistics and create input files for fitting the trapezoidal distribution to data from studies documenting the performance of individual structural stormwater...

This code was created to run a bioenergetics-based model of movement for Galapagos tortoises. It calculates energetic surplus or deficit at a daily time scale based on inputted temperature (6 times a day) and NDVI value (a single value per days), as well as the mass of an individual. It then uses dynamic programming to determine the optimal timing of movement between two foraging habitats, given time-series of NDVI in each habitat, and temperatures in both habitats and in a transition zone between habitats. The model relies on a variety of empirically derived relationships, including allometric relationships, derived for different groups of organisms (i.e., some relationships are based on analyses across multiples...
The Landscape Simulator is a web-based state-and-transition modelling framework powered by ST-Sim. It is designed to simulate the future vegetation composition of a selected area based on a set of initial conditions, probabilistic transitions, and management actions. This allows land managers to create scenarios for climate adaptation and management.

Protected Lands are the cornerstone around which local, regional and landscape conservation strategies are developed. These lands are designated to preserve functioning natural ecosystems and act as refuges for species. Additionally, protected lands provide public access to recreation and preservation of natural historic sites. In the face of a changing climate, how will these lands be impacted? The Landscape Climate Dashboard allows you to explore future climate projections and soil site sensitivity for federally held protected lands across the California, Pacific Northwest, Great Basin and Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) boundaries.

The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies CHAT is intended to provide coarse-scale, non-regulatory wildlife information to support project pre-planning. Users of this interactive map are encouraged to also visit state-specific CHAT sites for more detail and to remember that no online tool is a substitute for on-the-ground surveys and consultation with state wildlife experts. The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies CHAT was created by state wildlife agencies across the West, using a common framework to define "Crucial Habitat" using a suite of priority datasets. The metadata pages describe how each state compiled their Crucial Habitat data and how the regional data was aggregated.

The ViTexOCR script presents a new method for extracting navigation data from videos with text overlays using optical character recognition (OCR) software. Over the past few decades, it was common for videos recorded during surveys to be overlaid with real-time geographic positioning satellite chyrons including latitude, longitude, date and time, as well as other ancillary data (such as speed, heading, or user input identifying fields). Embedding these data into videos provides them with utility and accuracy, but using the location data for other purposes, such as analysis in a geographic information system, is not possible when only available on the video display. Extracting the text data from imagery using software...

Topock Marsh is a large wetland adjacent to the Colorado River and main feature of Havasu National Wildlife Refuge (Havasu NWR) in southern Arizona. In 2010, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and Bureau of Reclamation began a project to improve water management capabilities at Topock Marsh and protect habitats and species. Initial construction required a drawdown, which caused below-average inflows and water depths in 2010-2011. Co-applicants Daniels and Haegele of FORT monitored Topock Marsh during the drawdown and immediately after, thus obtained information on immediate effects. However, stress from the drawdown may have a delayed effect on aquatic resources; additionally, significant changes to the infrastructure...

The Seedlot Selection Tool (SST) is a web-based mapping application designed to help natural resource managers match seedlots with planting sites based on climatic information. The SST can be used to map current climates or future climates based on selected climate change scenarios. It is tailored for matching seedlots and planting sites, but can be used by anyone interested in mapping climates defined by temperature and water availability. The SST is most valuable as a planning and educational tool because of the uncertainty associated with climate interpolation models and climate change projections. The SST allows the user to control many input parameters, and can be customized for the management practices, climate...

The USGS assessment and methodology reports cited within this software release require extensive processing using computational methods and modeling. The most demanding aspects of the modeling were performed using publicly available software: SGeMS and GSLIB (See the 'Related External Resources' section on this webpage to learn more about this software). This publication releases the FORTRAN source code of 15 supplementary computer programs that are required to perform the more specific aspects of the modeling. Upon downloading a program, the user needs to use a FORTRAN compiler for generating the executable code. The tasks performed by these FORTRAN programs are: • blankgridsis, for blanking of several realizations...
The purpose of the CED is to efficiently capture the unprecedented level of conservation plans and actions being implemented throughout the sagebrush ecosystem and designed to capture actions not only for its most famous resident, the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus; hereafter, sage-grouse) but for the other species that rely on sagebrush habitats. Understanding the distribution and type of conservation actions happening across the landscape will allow visualization and quantification of the extent to which threats are being addressed. The spatially explicit, web-based Conservation Efforts Database is capable of (1) allowing multiple-users to enter data from different locations, (2) uploading and...

The LTDL was created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to catalog information about land treatments on Federal lands in the western United States for all interested parties. The flexible framework of the library allows for the storage of a wide variety of data in different formats. The LTDL currently stores previously established land treatments or what often are called legacy data. The project was developed and has been refined based on feedback from partner agencies and stakeholders, with opportunity for the library holdings to expand as new information becomes available. The library contains data in text, tabular, spatial, and image formats. Specific examples include project plans and implementation reports,...

The Nature's Stage Climate Mapper allows users to explore the geoclimatic stability of HUC5 watersheds within the Pacific Northwest. Geoclimatic Stability, as defined here, is a measure of a natural system's capacity to remain stable as the climate changes over time. This is based on two factors:Climate Departure: a measure of how different the future climate is projected to be from the historical climate.Climate Resilience: a measure of how resilient an area is expected to be to changes in climate (based on topoclimate diversity and landscape permeability). A watershed with lower levels of climate departure and higher levels of climate resilience is more likely to sustain current levels of native biodiversity into...

We have developed pyEMU, a python framework for Environmental Modeling Uncertainty analyses, open-source tool that is non-intrusive, easy-to-use, computationally efficient, and scalable to highly-parameterized inverse problems. The framework implements several types of linear (first-order, second-moment (FOSM)) and non-linear uncertainty analyses. The FOSM-based analyses can also be completed prior to parameter estimation to help inform important modeling decisions, such as parameterization and objective function formulation. Complete workflows for several types of FOSM-based and non-linear analyses are documented in example notebooks implemented using Jupyter that are available in the online pyEMU repository. Example...
