In January of 2014 over 40 stakeholders in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem (CCE) came together for a workshop with the objective of understanding landscape measures and indicators that are important in the CCE, and to initiate a discussion about collaborative management action. One of the outcomes of this workshop was a request by the managers for a tool that could be used to understand, monitor, and manage the impact of human use on the landscape. The work presented here is an initial attempt to measure, map and model human modification in the CCE. Using many of the publically available baseline datalayers assembled by the CMP (https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/55198320e4b032384278316f), we created an initial map of human modification across the CCE as well as several other sub-jurisdictions within the CCE.
This work was presented to stakeholders at a second workshop in Fernie, British Columbia in April 2014.
We have identified several major concerns around assumptions and methods used in this project, and work continues to analyze the methods and assumptions to identify strengths and weaknesses and ways to improve this analysis.
