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...
Colorado Plateau REA MQ G2: Where are areas of potential development (e.g., under lease), including renewable energy sites and transmission corridors and where are potential conflicts with CEs?
This map shows conservation element summaries within areas of potential near-term and long-term energy development. These summaries help highlight areas of potential conflict between conservation elements and energy development.
This map shows potential areas with high terrestrial biodiversity from TNC Ecoregional Portfolio Core dataset.
Colorado Plateau REA MQ F2: Where are the areas of potential future encroachment from this invasive species?
This map shows the current distribution of major invasive vegetation species (primarily cheatgrass and tamarisk), and predicted near-term future distribution of these species. Current distribution was derived from LANDFIRE EVT v1.1, NatureServe National Landcover v2.7, Early Season Invasives (USGS), Predicted Tamarisk Probability (USGS), and mapped areas of tamarisk. Predicted future distribution included these areas in addition to the invasive vegetation class from the LANDFIRE Succession Class v1.0 dataset.
This map shows the potential current distribution of white-tailed prairie dog, in the context of current and near-term terrestrial intactness and long-term potential for climate change and energy development.

This set of maps shows relative habitat diversity (complexity) as it relates to the number of different dominant cover types are found in 1 hectare, and the number of structural types found in 1 hectare. Component layers are included, as are layers of channel boundaries, reaches, and bottomland kilometers.
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.
This map shows allotments by ownership type, compiled from datasets obtained from BLM and USFS. Also shows current and near-term status and long-term potential for change.
This map shows the potential current distribution of Gunnison sage-grouse, in the context of current and near-term terrestrial intactness and long-term potential for climate change and energy development.
Colorado Plateau REA MQ E1: Where are the areas that have been changed by wildfire between 1999 and 2009?
This map shows areas that have experienced fire between 1999 and 2010, including fire severity information where available. Determination of "change" due to fire is not possible due to the lack of highly accurate pre- and post-fire maps of vegetation conditions, and the wide range of possible interpretations of what constitutes a change. Instead, the focus was placed on mapping the location of fires and severity; the overall likelihood of significant change in short term vegetation conditions increases with fire severity.
