The Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is a partnership formed and directed by resource management entities as well as interested public and private entities in the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan Desert and montane sky island regions of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Desert LCC science depends on access to transboundary base datasets. Given the importance of vegetation such as grasslands and riparian vegetation in conservation science, a bi-national, landscape-scale vegetation data layer with classes relevant to Desert LCC research is crucial. One objective of this project is to investigate appropriate methodologies and landscape scales to create a Desert LCC binational land cover...
This database contains the data inputs used to create a 30 meter resistance layer for the Western Washington Habitat Connectivity Assessment. All input data were clipped to the study area and converted to 30 meter raster format in the same projection with matching cell alignment unless otherwise noted. Input data was reclassified as needed in order to assign resistance values.We made three different resistance surfaces, using these data inputs, for testing in sensitivity analyses. For the first, we started with a conventional methodology for creating resistance surfaces (Using Gnarly Landscape Utilities), and then combined this result with nuanced layers about road impacts and building density impacts. These nuanced...
The dataset consists of more than 3,000 sites in Iowa that contain detailed, regional alluvial stratigraphic nomenclature. The dataset is comprised of boring, dug pit, and cutbank descriptions predominately from the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, but also from other alluvial studies, including those conducted by the IGS. The majority of these descriptions were first published in documents from the 1990s, but also included data collected in the 1970s and 1980s.
The South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint is a living spatial plan to conserve natural and cultural resources for future generations. It identifies shared conservation priorities across the South Atlantic region.Blueprint 2021, released in August 2021, is a totally data-driven plan based on terrestrial, freshwater, marine, and cross-ecosystem indicators. It uses the current condition of those indicators to prioritize the most important areas for natural and cultural resources across the South Atlantic geography. Through a connectivity analysis, the Blueprint also identifies corridors that link coastal and inland areas and span climate gradients. The Blueprint reflects extensive feedback from the broader cooperative...
The Blueprint 2021 Data Download is a .zip file containing all of the spatial data associated with South Atlantic Blueprint 2021.
The Blueprint 2021 Development Process is a final report that explains in detail how the Conservation Blueprint was created. It first provides an overview of the South Atlantic Blueprint framework, then combines the metadata available on the Conservation Planning Atlas for all indicators, ecosystem integrity scores, hubs and corridors, and final Blueprint priorities. It is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide to the South Atlantic Blueprint objectives, data sources, and methodology that could enable an interested reader to reproduce the Blueprint independently.
This is a collection of core reports, primarily from rock cores within the Bureau of Economic Geology.
The Southeast Conservation Blueprint is a map of important areas for conservation and restoration across the Southeast and Caribbean. The Blueprint is the primary product of the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS). Through SECAS, diverse partners are working together to design and achieve a connected network of lands and waters that supports thriving fish and wildlife populations and improved quality of life for people.
This is a test abstract for training purposes.
The Blueprint uses a least-cost path connectivity analysis to identify connections between priority areas. A program called LinkageMapper defines corridors that link hubs across the shortest distance possible, while also routing through as much Blueprint priority as possible. Inland corridors connect large patches of highest priority Blueprint areas and/or protected lands, within broad areas of established conservation interest for connectivity. Marine and estuarine corridors connect large estuaries and/or large patches of highest priority Blueprint areas, within broad marine mammal movement areas.Inland Hubs & CorridorsInland Resistance RasterThis is the resistance raster or cost surface used in the Linkage Mapper-based...
This polygon feature class represents the final spatial extent and boundaries of the BLM Fire History Perimeter: Final Perimeters symbolized by decade. The data is used for vegetation analysis such as habitat suitability, vegetation types and succession. Fire History can be used for current strategy and tactics on fires, fuels management, making forecasts for fire planning, analysis of vegetation and for stabilization and rehabilitation activities after fire. There are internal and external reporting requirements on burned acreage on a daily and annual basis. This will also provide timely updates for public web-services. These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) “as is” and might contain errors...
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Soil Sample Archive is a database of information describing soil and sediment samples collected in support of USGS science. Samples in the archive have been registered with International Generic Sample Numbers, relabeled with bar-coded sample labels, and repacked in containers for long-term preservation. Details of sample collection location, collection date, associated datasets, mass of remaining sample, storage locations, and other relevant information are tabulated here so that interested parties may identify associated datasets and search, sort, and gain access to archived samples.

Webinar: Riparian Climate Corridors:Identifying Priority Areas for Conservation in a Changing Climate
Webinar for by Meade Krosby, UW, July 24, 2014Protecting and restoring ecological connectivity is a leading climate adaptation strategy forbiodiversity conservation (Heller & Zavaleta 2009, Lawler 2009), because species are expectedto have difficulty tracking shifting climates across fragmented landscapes (Thomas et al. 2004).Connectivity conservation is thus a primary focus of numerous large-scale climate adaptationinitiatives (e.g., U.S. Department of Interior’s Landscape Conservation Cooperatives), and a corestrategy of many federal climate adaptation plans (NPS 2010, USFS 2011, USFWS 2010). Thishas led to a growing need for approaches that identify priority areas for connectivityconservation in a changing climate.Riparian...
