Maps and Data

Here you can find maps and data to support landscape-scale conservation planning and design.

Conservation planning is used to identify and prioritize landscapes with important natural and/or cultural resources (e.g., critical watersheds, habitat for rare or threatened species, grazing lands) and develop protection and management strategies for these places. Science is at the core of planning and is deeply informed by stakeholders who bring their on-the-ground knowledge and expertise.

The products of conservation planning can come in different forms, including maps that illustrate key landscapes, data layers that can be added into decision support tools, and spatial resources that show the quality and quantity of certain habitats. Natural resource managers and landowners alike can use maps and data to sustain working lands, support biodiversity, and improve landscape resilience.

Below are conservation planning tools, GIS and spatial data resources, and products from partners. You are welcome to use these resources in your own conservation and working lands efforts.

Appalachian Naturescape: Conservation Design

Appalachian Naturescape: Conservation Design

A Conservation Design can be a series of maps or data layers that illustrate the location of key focal landscapes and priority resources, or combined into decision support tools that can inform managers and conservations about the quality, quantity, and location of habitat needed to protect biodiversity. The successful conservation design product will provide public land managers, NGOs, and private landowners the ability to incorporate landscape data into their own local land-use decisions.
