(A newer version of these data is now available, Protected Areas - Colorado, October 2012 ) This dataset is an extraction from PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition), by state. The PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) data set portrays the nation's protected areas with a standardized spatial geometry and numerous valuable attributes on land ownership, management designations, and conservation status (using national GAP and international IUCN coding systems). The PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) defines protected areas to include all lands dedicated to the preservation of biological diversity and to other natural, recreation and cultural uses, and managed for these purposes through legal or other effective means (adapted from IUCN definition).

The use of digital information to aid in land management decision making has become a standardized practice over the last 20 years. However, gathering this information for regional and national level analysis is problematic due to the number of organizations holding and gathering data along with compatibility issues within the data. Protected lands are a key component to landscape conservation efforts of the LCC’s and are also one of the keys to developing a response to climate change impacts. Many efforts, such as the Protected Areas Database (PAD) created by the Conservation Biology Institute and USGS have been undertaken, but these have largely focused on lands conserved in fee. The National Conservation Easement...

Multiple systems exist classifying the protection status of lands on a national and global scale. To quantify the level of protected status of lands within the SRLCC, a classification scheme developed by the U.S. Geological Survey GAP program was used. This system classifies parcels of land on a 1-4 scale, with 1 being the most protected and 4 the least. Protected Areas Database of the US, PAD-US (CBI Edition) 2012. Conservation Biology Institute.

Protected areas are cornerstones of national and international conservation strategies. By way of these designations, lands and waters are set-aside in-perpetuity to preserve functioning natural ecosystems, act as refuges for species, and maintain ecological processes. Complementary conservation strategies preserve land for the sustainable use of natural resources, or for the protection of significant geologic and cultural features or open space. PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) attempts to include all available spatial data on these places. It is our goal to publish the most comprehensive geospatial data set of U. S. protected areas to date. PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition) is limited to the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii....

These protected areas were estimated by the Conservation Biology Institute as being most immediately threatened by the corresponding Deepwater Horizon oil spill trajectory forecast in the Gulf of Mexico. This dataset is extracted from PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition), and the original metadata has been included here, below. First, protected areas within 1 mile of the entire study area coastline (TX to NJ), or that intersect hydrological feature polygons from the NHDPlus National Hydrography Dataset within the 1-mile coastline buffer, were extracted from PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition). Then, protected areas were identified as being under primary, secondary, or tertiary threat from the oil spill. The probability of being affected...

This dataset is extracted from PAD-US 1.1 (CBI Edition), and the original metadata has been included here. These protected areas were identified by the Conservation Biology Institute as being secondarily threatened by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico if trajectory projections continue on their current course, as given by trajectory projections for 05/28/2010. For more information, please see the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico page at Data Basin (http://www.databasin.org/aquatic-center/features/oil-spill or http://www.databasin.org).

PAD-US (CBI Edition) Version 2 is a national database of protected fee lands in the United States. PAD-US (CBI Edition) Version 2 has been redesigned to be used along with the National Conservation Easement Database (NCED), to visualize the entire terrestrial conservation estate of the United States. PAD-US (CBI Edition) Version 2 is limited to the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. It does not include protected areas data for U.S. territories at this time.Protected areas are cornerstones of national and international conservation strategies.

This polygon data set includes the protected areas of the Eastern United States of America that are managed by national, state, provincial, or territorial authorities. As defined by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), a protected area is an area of land and/or sea especially dedicated to the protection and maintenance of biological diversity, and of natural and associated cultural resources, and managed through legal or other effective means. The data set was assembled for the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) from other public data sets containing data on protected areas in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Protected area data was obtained from Natural Resources Canada...

The Desert LCC identified the need for a Protected Areas spatial database that showed land ownership, management designations and conservation status for lands in the United States and Mexico. However, the existing Protected Areas database was found to be particularly prone to boundary and database errors that affected its potential use. This USGS project will develop a single, seamless, error-free Protected Areas dataset for the full geographic scope of the Desert LCC. This will involve acquiring numerous spatial layers from Federal, State, and NGO organizations which are responsible for administering and/or managing areas that have a designated protected status. Protected Area will be categorized as defined by...
