The Future Human Footprint (FHF) of the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion projects the extent and relative intensity of human influence on terrestrial ecosystems over a 20-40 year span at a resolution of 90 m using best available data sets on human settlement (population density, dwelling density, urban areas), access (roads, rail lines), landscape transformation (landuse/landcover, dams, mines, watersheds), and electrical power infrastructure (utility corridors). The Future Human Footprint uses as a basis the Current Human Footprint, and projects forward salient, dynamic features of human infrastructure including residential roads, human settlement, and amenity development. It attempts to capture two dominant...

The Wild Areas of the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion are those areas with a Human Footprint score equal to or less that 10 (HF <= 10). These are the 10% wildest, or least human influenced places in the ecoregion. The Human Footprint (HF) of the Northern Appalachian/Acadian ecoregion measures the extent and relative intensity of human influence on terrestrial ecosystems at a resolution of 90 m using best available data sets on human settlement (population density, dwelling density, urban areas), access (roads, rail lines), landscape transformation (landuse/landcover, dams, mines, watersheds), and electrical power infrastructure (utility corridors). The Human Footprint is calculated by assigning Human Influence...
