The Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is a geodatabase that illustrates and describes public land ownership, management and conservation lands nationally, including voluntarily provided privately protected areas. The lands included in PAD-US are assigned conservation measures that qualify their intent to manage lands for the preservation of biological diversity and to other natural, recreational and cultural uses; managed for these purposes through legal or other effective means. The geodatabase includes: 1) Geographic boundaries of public land ownership and voluntarily provided private conservation lands (e.g., Nature Conservancy Preserves); 2) The combination land owner, land manager, management...

This raster depicts the percentage of lithological the hydraulic conductivity (in micrometers per second) of surface or near surface geology. We derived these rasters by calculating the average conductivity for each map unit in combined surficial-bedrock geologic maps. We used state geologic maps (Preliminary Integrated Geologic Map Databases for the United States, Open File Reports 2004-1355, 2005-1305, 2005-1323, 2005-1324, 2005-1325, 2005-1351, and 2006-1272), which depict surficial geology instead of bedrock when the surficial layers are sufficiently deep. For the state maps that do not incorporate surficial geology (i.e., midwestern states), we overlaid surficial geologic map units with thicknesses greater...

This shapefile contains landscape factors representing human disturbances summarized to local and network catchments of river reaches for the Driftless Area Restoration Effort. This dataset is the result of clipping the feature class 'NFHAP 2010 HCI Scores and Human Disturbance Data for the Conterminous United States linked to NHDPLUSV1.gdb' to the boundary of the Driftless Area Restoration Effort. Landscape factors include land uses, population density, roads, dams, mines, and point-source pollution sites. The source datasets that were compiled and attributed to catchments were identified as being: (1) meaningful for assessing fish habitat; (2) consistent across the entire study area in the way that they were assembled;...

This set of maps shows relative habitat quality for snakes that prefer the rocky outside margin of the bottomland area. Component layers (type and count of cover types, distance to bottomland boundary and distance to permanent water) are included, as are associated layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.

Component layers are included, as are layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.

Current national data resources for GAP include three primary data sets – land cover, protected areas, and species. Land Cover: The GAP land cover data set includes detailed vegetation and land use patterns for the continental United States. The data set incorporates the Ecological System classification system developed by NatureServe to represent natural and semi-natural land cover. The 590 land use classes in the data set can be displayed at three levels of detail, from general (8 classes) to most detailed. The land cover data can be used to identify those places in the country with sufficient good quality habitat to support wildlife, a key step in developing sound conservation plans.

This collection of maps shows relative habitat quality for a suite of species that use riparian overstory habitats. Component layers include: tree patch size, presence and complexity of riparian understory, and abundance of tamarisk. Associated layers such as river channels at high flow and bottomland reaches are included for reference.

This data layer summarizes ecological systems and land cover classes described in state-level and national-level maps as Broadly Defined Habitats for groups of species of conservation concern. Each grid cell in the raster is assigned a Condition Index value based on desired condition metrics using ancillary datasets and a decision tree approach for each assessed habitat. Grid cells are also assigned bar code descriptors indicating which metrics contributed to the Condition Index score for that cell. This layer also contains information about potential habitats based on the LANDFIRE Biophysical Settings data layer. This layer was developed to support the next iteration of the Conservation Blueprint developed by the...

This raster depicts the percentage of lithological aluminum oxide (Al2O3) content in surface or near surface geology. We derived these rasters by calculating the average percent Al2O3 content for each map unit in combined surficial-bedrock geologic maps. We used state geologic maps (Preliminary Integrated Geologic Map Databases for the United States, Open File Reports 2004-1355, 2005-1305, 2005-1323, 2005-1324, 2005-1325, 2005-1351, and 2006-1272), which depict surficial geology instead of bedrock when the surficial layers are sufficiently deep. For the state maps that do not incorporate surficial geology (i.e., midwestern states), we overlaid surficial geologic map units with thicknesses greater than 100 feet (from...

This collection of maps shows fluvial geomorphic features of the Colorado River bottomland including river channel boundaries at high flow (31,300 cubic ft/sec on 06/28/2011 at the Cisco gage) and at lower flow (3,410 cubic ft/sec on 09/06/2010 at the Cisco gage). Also shown is the bottomland boundary delineating the currently active fluvial surface; the bottomland is subdivided by both reaches and bottomland kilometers for reference. Centerlines for the bottomland and 2010 river channel are included, also.
