Summary

Most natural resource managers, planners and policy makers are now dependent upon spatially explicit environmental suitability and spatial allocation analyses to inform policy and management decisions. However, staff across agencies has been unable to stay current on understanding and applying these new data, tools and analyses. Currently, this information may be underutilized or used inappropriately, which could result in poor decisions. Two training curricula were developed – one for managers and one for GIS analysts – on current best practices for developing and using spatial information to support conservation decision making. The training materials are open-source and widely distributed to California LCC stakeholders.

valueProducts/Data Sharing: For our project we will develop a training curriculum for both courses that will include sample data, multimedia, and module lesson plans. The courses themselves will open to anyone interested but the target audiences will be planners, managers, and technical analysts (usually GIS Specialists). We will make final course content and curriculum available through partner websites and the California Climate Commons.
