Data layers pertaining to the management, restoration, or acquisition designations of state, federal, and non-government organizations (e.g., Focus Areas, Opportunity Areas, Priority Areas, Outstanding Natural Areas) along with the conservation estate (i.e. protected lands) within the Mississippi River Basin and intended to support development of the Multi-LCC Mississippi River Basin/Gulf Hypoxia Initiative’s Conservation Blueprint.

The Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative Land Cover Map shows land cover at a regional scale (1:2,500,000). The files provided are graphic design files that can be used to plot a publication-quality, poster-size map.Scale: 1:2,500,000 Map poster dimensions: 34 x 44 inches Data sources:Land cover from North American Environmental Atlas by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, 2010. Physiographic regions from Natural Earth 1:10 million scale Physical Labels (3.0.0) derived from Patterson’s Physical Map of the World, 2008.

About This ProjectOpen woodlands dominated by southern yellow pine were historically a large component of the landscape across the southeastern United States. These woodlands have an open canopy of longleaf, slash, shortleaf, and/or loblolly pines, with scattered shrubs and a grassy understory. These southern open pine ecosystems support many species of wildlife, many of which have declined in recent years as the amount and condition of their habitat has declined. This troubling decline in wildlife species has led to a focus on regional conservation efforts by America’s Longleaf, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, state wildlife agencies, the U.S. Forest Service, National...
This project will support the hiring of a detail position to work with the Geomatics Coordinator to complete current assessments of terrestrial systems focusing on landscape endpoints as described in the GCPO LCC’s Integrated Science Agenda, then begin the process of applying species endpoints to these landscapes through a Landscape Conservation Design process for the entire GCPO geography. This rapid ecological assessment will seek to answer the following questions: (1) How much habitat is in a desired ecological state, as defined by the Integrated Science Agenda? (2) How much more habitat is needed? (3) Where is habitat that is in the desired ecological state? (4) Where are opportunities to manage improved or...
The GCPO LCC assessed landscapes within the broad vegetative class of grasslands at a spatial resolution of 30 meters using a national database of existing vegetation type (LANDFIRE) combined with various high resolution data layers obtained from the states of Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida, and from researchers, non-governmental agencies, and state agencies for Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Missouri. This process identified over 32 million acres of the grassland vegetative type (broadly defined) and just over 1 million acres meeting the more restrictive definition of prairie (Figure 1). However, none of those areas identified as prairie were shown to meet all four of the condition endpoints assessed, and only...
The Big Bend reach of the central Platte River serves as a major staging area for migratory water birds (waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds) during spring migration. Reduced spring flows and drought conditions within the Platte system have promoted encroachment by undesirable woody and herbaceous invasive species. This encroachment has caused the once shallow braided channels of the Platte River to incise. This action has significantly reduced available habitat for roosting and loafing Sandhill Cranes, endangered Whooping Cranes, and millions of waterfowl that annually utilize the Platte River each spring. This change in river morphology has also reduced available nesting habitat for the federally listed Interior...

This layer was created by selecting classes relevant to conservation of the grassland-prairie-savanna broadly defined habitat from the LANDFIRE Existing Vegetation Type (evt) spatial data product clipped to the boundary of the GCPO LCC. The layer was generated as in input layer for the Draft Grassland Condition Index raster data layer in support of the GCPO LCC rapid ecological assessment of the Grassland-Prairie-Savanna Priority Habitat. In selecting vegetation types, “grasslands” were defined as any landscape dominated by grass, excluding classes considered to be features of other priority habitats, such as marshes, dunes, glades, woodlands, and pine savanna. The 44 selected grassland classes included pasture/hay...

The dataset includes Land Use/Land Cover types throughout the Chenier Eco-Region in Southwest Louisiana. Using the 2015 NAIP dataset (1m) as the basemap, E-Cognition image objects were derived from the multiresolution segmentation algorithm at 75 and 250 segments. Attempts to refine the data training methods using E-cognition, to extrapolate automating categories of this information to the entire map resulted with exceedingly low accuracy. Therefore, a raster was produced by piecing together several data resources, which provide reliable data for specific LULC categories. This process involved stitching together more reliable sources for specific categories to apply to higher resolution (75) segmentation product....

This is a land cover dataset for Nebraska that was most recently updated in 2020 by the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture. This metadata record supplements the complete description of the data in Bishop, A., Grosse,R., Barenberg, A., Volpe, N., and Riens, J. January, Nebraska Land Cover Development Version 2016. Rainwater Basin Joint Venture, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Grand Island, Nebraska.

The National Landcover Database (NLCD) from the United States (2001) and the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) (2000), and a classified Landsat TM scene to fill the gap between the US and Canada were mosaicked together. Landsat images from June or July 2000-2002 were used to be consistent with timing of other data layers. Landcover across the layers were crosswalked and standardized into 5 classes: crop, grassland, other/non-habitat, woody vegetation and water/wetlands.
