Some of the NOS rasters intentionally do not align or have the same extent. These rasters were not snapped to a common raster per the authors' discretion. Please review selected rasters prior to use. These varying alignments are a result of the use of differing source data sets and all products derived from them. We recommend that users snap or align rasters as best suits their own projects. - As a final measure of potential human impacts to the ecoregions, the impacts of current anthropogenic development are summarized in a 60 x 60 m grid by the landscape condition model (LCM). The LCM weights the relative influence of different types of human footprints based on factors like permanence, nature of the activity,...

This simple assessment raster is used to answer management questions (MQs) about where change agents (CAs) overlap with BLM high biodiversity sites (HBS) in the Central Great Basin and Range Ecoregion. This is a basic footprint assessment of anthropogenic features (urban development, roads, etc) intersect with the areas of HBS. The HBS were derived from source data characterizing locations with concentrated at-risk biodiversity or existing source data of a prioritization exercise that identified areas of high conservation significance. It does not model actual response or condition of the HBS to the CAs. The data intersects two primary classes of information: The CAs consist of 19 classes which represent different...

A line dataset of current (abandoned) and future railroads in the SNK REA - derived from the Alaska Infrastructure 1:63,360 line data set with modifications (see the process steps for details). This data depicts infrastructure locations in Alaska as digitized primarily from 1:24,000, 1:63,360, and 1:250,000 USGS quadrangles. The source document that represented the newest information and best geographic location was used to capture the data. All infrastructure from the primary source document was digitized and then supplemented with the information from other source documents for additional or updated infrastructure or attributes.

This dataset provides an estimate of water-based recreation travel corridors, based on a combination of wild and scenic rivers, and major rivers selected from NHD that were listed on the BLM rivers website. All reaches of these rivers were selected, as insufficient information exists to determine what segments may or may not be open to recreation. Other areas may be open to water-based recreation travel than are represented in this dataset.

This dataset provides a measure of near-term high development, as an integration of several factors representing landscape development. This measure was calculated using a fuzzy logic model, which is represented in graphical format in \Vector\Change_Agents\Development\Documentation\COP_DV_logic_models.pptx This dataset represents the combination of energy, agriculture, urban, and recreation development. Original source data were summarized to 4KM reporting unit, and converted to fuzzy values (rescaled on a -1 to 1 value range) for input to the fuzzy logic model. These data include: utility lines, pipelines (from BLM), oil/gas wells (from BLM), oil/gas well anticipated development (from Holly Copeland 2009), mines...

This raster dataset is the result of a subtraction of the classification of raster datasets bhd2030us and bhd2000us. Both are produced using the SERGoM v3 model, they depict housing density for the coterminous US in 2030 and 2000, resp., and are based on 2000 US Census Bureau block (SF1) datasets. (The classication of the subtraction is shown below.) A raster layer that portrays not-developed (and assumed to be undevelopable) called CUS_UPP_100 depicts protected/unprotected lands and Census water polygons. First, Land was removed from blocks (reducing the area of a block, but not its number of housing units -- assuming that private housing units must be on private land) that was public and/or protected in the UNPROTPRIV100...

Landscape condition should not be assessed at a particular location without some explicit consideration of the surrounding environment. Landscape intactness provides a quantifiable and readily assessable measure of naturalness: it is a measure of how contiguous a landscape is. The purpose of this dataset is to provide an assessment of the relative landscape condition across a region to identify if the areas with degraded conditions are isolated or connected, which corresponds to how resilient an area might be to future changes. Some elements of human modification, specifically subsistence harvest, are not captured well in current models of intactness. Therefore, we modeled landscape intactness by extracting areas...

Each community in the study area is served by an isolated grid, with its own generation and distribution infrastructure. All energy infrastructure in each community is within the community’s footprint. Barrow and Prudhoe Bay, the two largest population centers, rely completely on natural gas for generation of electricity. Nuiqsut relies both on natural gas and diesel. Other than Barrow and Prudhoe Bay, all other communities have small demand loads, and thus only generate less than a megawatt.

This raster is used to answer management questions (MQs) about where conservation elements (CEs) overlap with areas of high wind energy potential in the Mojave Basin and Range Ecoregion. The value indicated in the raster represents a normalized score between 0-1, the lower the value the few species and poorer modeled landscape condition (ecological integrity) expected. The higher the score, the more species and higher condition are expected. This layer seeks to address an article in the BLM Statement of Work 1.1.1 stated, Areas with High Potential for Renewable Energy Development (Required) (The Contractor shall a) locate areas identified (e.g., by DOE, USGS) as suitable for wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass...

This simple assessment raster is used to answer management questions (MQs) about where change agents (CAs) overlap with BLM Herd Management Areas (HMAs) in the Central Great Basin and Range Ecoregion. This is a basic footprint assessment of anthropogenic features (urban development, roads, etc) intersect with areas managed for wild horses and burros in the western US. It does not model actual response or condition of the HMAs to the CAs. The data intersects two primary classes of information: The CAs consist of 19 classes which represent different types of human infrastructure on the landscape. Some types are easily defined, precise footprints (pipelines, roads, energy development areas) while others are broader...

This simple assessment raster is used to answer management questions (MQs) about which grazing allotments (GAs) will experience significant climate change in the near future scenario in the Mojave Basin and Range Ecoregion. This is a basic intersect of areas that will likely experience significant climate change effects with the areas of public land that are leased to private entities for grazing by livestock. It does not model actual response or condition of the GAs to climate change. Nearly all GAs in the ecoregion will experience significant effects according to the criteria that were selected. The climate space trends data layer was used to ascertain areas of significant climate changes. Cells that represent...
