USGS - science for a changing world

Greg McDermid

An ecological health monitoring program for the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem faces unique challenges posed by an international and inter-provincial border and multiple management jurisdictions. The project is intended to (i) evaluate the suitability of existing geospatial data sets for providing baseline information on habitats and human footprints, (ii) fill in missing or unreliable information through remote sensing, and (iii) develop the tools and monitoring strategies necessary for analyzing changes in baseline conditions through time. The team represents a unique partnership between the University of Calgary, the National Parks Service, and all participating agencies within the Crown Managers Partnership,...

Funding supports a multiyear initiative entitled Crown of the Continent Landscapes Analysis/Ecological Indicators Project. The work is designed to focus on issues on transboundary data integration and synthesis, habitatconnectivity analysis for grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) and other key wildlife species, and outreach programs aimed at disseminating knowledge, information products, and geospatial tools arising out of this work to the extensive network of Crown Managers Partnership (CMP) and GNLCC collaborators.FY2010Objectives:The monitoring strategy will focus on the development and acquisition of geospatial datasets from remote sensing and other GIS sources designed to track changes in habitats and human footprint...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
