This zipped folder includes a file geodatabase that contains the spatial data sets gathered for the second phase of the Arid Land Initiative’s Landscape Conservation Design activity in the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion, as well as an excel file with information about the Ecological Integrity Assessment (EIA) data variables. This analysis, which was funded by the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative, is fully described in the 2015 ALI report also available on ScienceBase, here.
The file geodatabase contains the Priority Conservation Areas identified using Marxan in the first phase of the analysis. For the second phase, numerous statistics summarizing representing current conservation value and vulnerability to various threats were calculated for each PCA. These attributes were summarized in the Scorecards included in ALI 2015. Field descriptions of the EIA data are included in the attached excel spreadsheet, and field descriptions for the PCAs_with_score_attributes feature class are included in its metadata.
