Managed areas in Wyoming, including National Forest, Wilderness, Park boundaries; Wildlife Habitat Management areas; state parks and other managed areas. This dataset is a subset of the Wyoming Gap Analysis land ownership and management status dataset, developed at 1:100,000 scale for Wyoming.
All FRCC calculations were done in ArcGIS 9.3.1 with the FRCC Mapping Tool version 2.2.0, using Landfire Biophysical Settings (BpS) and Succession Class (S-Class) layers and the default Landfire Reference Condition table (LFnat_west). All calculations were performed at a 30-meter resolution. Input BpS and S-Class layers were downloaded using the Landfire Data Access Tool version 2.2 (configuration database version 1.27, feature database version 1.02). Three landscape levels were used in all calculations, the 4th, 5th and 6th field HUCs from the "Pacific NW Sixth Field Hucs" GIS layer from Bonneville Power Administration (Subbasins, Watersheds and Subwatersheds, resp.). FRCC Calculation Procedure For each of the...
Moving from Awareness to Action: Informing Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments and Adaptation Planning for Idaho and Montana National Forests
The rugged landscapes of northern Idaho and western Montana support biodiverse ecosystems, and provide a variety of natural resources and services for human communities. However, the benefits provided by these ecosystems may be at risk as changing climate magnifies existing stressors and allows new stressors to emerge. Preparation for and response to these potential changes can be most effectively addressed through multi-stakeholder partnerships, evaluating vulnerability of important resources to climate change, and developing response and preparation strategies for managing key natural resources in a changing world. This project supports climate-smart conservation and management across forests of northern Idaho...
This dataset represents Scenic Classes from the Scenery Management System (SMS) for National Forests in southern California. The SMS is a tool for integrating the benefits, values, desires, and preferences regarding aesthetics and scenery for all levels of land and resource management planning. People are concerned about the quality of their environment and the aesthetic values of landscapes, particularly the scenery and spiritual values. Scenic integrity objectives have been designated for all areas of the national forest. At the project level, all national forest activities are subject to review of the scenic integrity objectives
NWFP-20 - Northwest Forest Plan Effectiveness Monitoring (20-Year Report)Estimated completion June 2015This project is a continuation of research completed for the 15-year Report for NWFP Effectiveness Monitoring. We are continuing to develop and refine modeling techniques and data, to provide improved multi-date GNN maps of forest vegetation and older forest. Key improvements to GNN modeling to be implemented in this project are: (1) addition of more inventory plots, with yearly matching of plots to LandTrendr imagery for model development; (2) incorporation of measures of disturbance history, derived from LandTrendr algorithms, as spatial predictors; (3) improved GNN outlier analysis using TimeSync; and (4) additional...
National Park Service units, National Forests and Grasslands, and designated Wilderness Area boundaries of the lower 48 United States. Wilderness areas may be managed by USFS, NPS, USFWS, or BLM. Boundaries were digitized at 1:2,000,000 scale, which means an NMAS accuracy of approximately 1 km, so boundaries may not line up with other features.
National Forest Administrative boundaries for Wyoming.
This dataset depicts Willow flycatcher habitat for National Forests in the Sierra Nevada Range. Meadows were derived from the Sierrawide meadow vegetation layer (MDVG) by reselecting for wet meadows with woody vegetation (WW) and without woody vegetation (WO). Some meadows were derived from reselecting willow-dominated vegetation from the existing vegetation (EVEG) layer. Initially, all meadows greater than or equal to 15 acres were categorized as Emphasis (E), and meadows smaller than 15 acres were categorized as Small (S). Meadows identified as containing a known willow flycatcher observation, which are identified as points in coverage WIFLPT_9, were then categorized as Occupied (O). Item WFLY_ID provides a link...
The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a web-based tool that substantively connects planning and science through a report generation service. TACCIMO provides land owners, managers, and planners with access to the best and most current climate change science available.
