Summary

Spatial planning is becoming an increasingly important component of managing natural resources in the face of growing demands upon and threats to our public lands. Efforts to model and map the goods and services derived from ecosystems provide important information to planning efforts, permitting the analysis of tradeoffs or costs and benefits associated with management alternatives. Much progress has been made in the development of spatially explicit models and tools for assessing biophysically derived ecosystem service endpoints, but the capacity to account for social values, including cultural ecosystem services, remains limited. The Social Values for Ecosystem Services (SolVES) tool was designed to help fill this gap by linking [...]

Distance to Water (DTW) Derivation
 
The distance to water (DTW) data layers were derived from the USGS National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), http://viewer.nationalmap.gov/viewer/nhd.html?p=nhd. The ArcGIS Euclidian Distance tool was used to calculate the horizontal distance in meters to the nearest water body/feature (point, line, or polygon). The output distance rasters were generated at a 30-m cell size.

SolVES models were run using the tool available here: https://solves.cr.usgs.gov/
