All Conservation Design Elements identified through a multi-year conservation planning effort undertaken by the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). These elements were identified by the program Marxan as meeting collective conservation targets. Datasets include a merged design of all five elements, individual element shapefiles, and a prioritization shapefile (Conservation Design elements outlined by the NatureScape Design that were then placed into a prioritization framework based on Margulis and Pressy 2000).
Aquatic Planning Units are derived from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Hydrography Dataset (NHD)+ v. 2 catchments. They contain information used throughout the NatureScape (landscape conservation design) development. The tables include summaries of information within each catchment including predictor variables. See SI.
Appalachian LCC NatureScape Integrated Modeling
Terrestrial-based planning units of 1 kilometer (km) hexagons. There are about 600,000 units populated with conservation targets from around the Appalachian region. One of the targets included is the optimization from the Aquatics-only target scenario. The tables include summaries of information within each catchment including predictor variables.
Catchment Scores are selected from the Aquatic Planning Units dataset derived from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Hydrography Dataset (NHD)+ v. 2 catchments. They contain information used throughout the NatureScape (landscape conservation design) development.
These datasets are products of Phase II of the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative’s (LCC) landscape conservation design (LCD) created by Clemson University as part of the LCC-funded project, “Interactive Conservation Planning for the Appalachian LCC”. The Appalachian NatureScape Design incorporates and models newly developed data and information from all Appalachian LCC funded research projects as well as key existing datasets from partners to produce a series of maps that integrate aquatic connectivity with terrestrial significant habitats to guide conservation planning and decision making.Conservation Planning, a process of spatially identifying and prioritizing lands and waters important for functioning...
