The Offshore Santa Barbara Map Area lies within the eastern Santa Barbara Channel portion of the Southern California Bight. This geologically complex region forms a major biogeographic transition zone, separating the cold-temperate Oregonian Province north of Point Conception from the warm-temperate California Province to the south. Onshore of the map area, the city of Santa Barbara (population ~92,000) is the main coastal population center; it is part of a contiguous urban area that extends from Carpinteria to Goleta with a population of about 220,000. This urban area was developed south of the west-trending Santa Ynes Mountains on coalescing alluvial surfaces, uplifted marine terraces, and low west-trending hills...

"Bird Conservation Regions (BCRs) are ecologically distinct regions in North America with similar bird communities, habitats, and resource management issues. They are based on the scale-flexible hierarchical framework of nested ecological units delineated by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC). These ecoregions encompass areas that are similar in their biotic (e.g., plant and wildlife) and abiotic (e.g., soils, drainage patterns, temperature, and annual precipitation) characteristics. BCRs may be partitioned into smaller ecological units when finer scale conservation planning, implementation, and evaluation are necessary. Conversely, BCRs may be aggregated to facilitate conservation partnerships...

The Polygons represent the USGS NHD 12 digit HUC polygons which contain known winter roost trees for Northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis). This data was updated 12/12/2016 to include a watershed in Bladen County, NC, this data was updated 03/20/2018 to include more watersheds

This dataset represents the extent of urbanization (for the year indicated) predicted by the model SLEUTH, developed by Dr. Keith C. Clarke, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Department of Geography and modified by David I. Donato of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Eastern Geographic Science Center (EGSC). Further model modification and implementation was performed at the Biodiversity and Spatial Information Center at North Carolina State University.

In 2007, the California Ocean Protection Council initiated the California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP), designed to create a comprehensive seafloor map of high-resolution bathymetry, marine benthic habitats, and geology within the 3-nautical-mile limit of California’s State Waters. The CSMP approach is to create highly detailed seafloor maps through collection, integration, interpretation, and visualization of swath sonar data, acoustic backscatter, seafloor video, seafloor photography, high-resolution seismic-reflection profiles, and bottom-sediment sampling data. The map products display seafloor morphology and character, identify potential marine benthic habitats, and illustrate both the surficial seafloor...

Vegetation and land cover of Blue Ridge National Wildlife Refuge, circa 2011. This dataset is based on interpretation of aerial imagery from the National Agricultural Imagery Program from 2010. Image classification was performed using eCognition software, which creates homogeneous polygons from the imagery. Image statistics such as texture, NDVI and spectral values were then calculated for each polygon used to classify the imagery. Field data was collected in August, 2011 to assist in the image interpretation. No additional field data were collected for validation, and no validation or accuracy assessment was completed for this dataset. Therefore, no estimates of accuracy are given.

Soils data clipped to the Clear Lake NWR boundary. These are SSURGO soils from the USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service.

This dataset was compiled and published as a service definition for the purpose of display in an interactive web map of the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI). The data layers selected for the dataset are a subset of the data layers in USGS Data Series 683, the Energy Map of Southwestern Wyoming, Part A - Coal and Wind (2012). Data Series 683 includes a geodatabase of all the shapefiles used as data sources. These shapefiles and their metadata can be downloaded from http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/683/contents/Datafiles/. In order to show the most recent information about mine activity in Wyoming, an additional data layer was added to the service definition: Active Coal Mines (data set credit: Chris Carrol,...

Predicted habitat suitability model (also known as a species distribution model) for the Mojave Ground Squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis) in 5 counties (Inyo, Kern, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles), in California. This model was generated using a maximum entropy (MaxEnt, v3.3.3e) approach. This layer is a probability distribution of 'suitable habitat', where values range from 0 (very low probability of species occurrence) to 1 (very high probability of species occurrence). As with any model, prudence should be taken when evaluating model predictions or when applying the predictions to real world assessments of habitat. The logistic output values were rescaled to include the set [0,1] by subtracting the minimum...

Predicted habitat suitability for the Mojave Ground Squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis) after the LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH anthropogenic (urban, roads and cleared vegetation) and utility-scale renewable energy development (wind, solar and transmission corridors) scale factors have been applied. Scale factors are discussed in Inman et al. (2013). These data cover 5 counties (Inyo, Kern, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles) in California and were generated using a maximum entropy (MaxEnt, v3.3.3e) approach. Observation records for the targeted species were derived from a conglomerate of local sources, and are provided electronically along with this model. The model was based on 440 input localities derived from 629 observations...

The data was developed from Map 1 on page 5 of Introduction to the California Condor by Snyder and Snyder, 2005. The data represents what the authors described as the "approximate range of the California Condor in about 1800". In early historical times, the authors described the California Condor as being widely distributed along the west coast of North America, from present day British Columbia in Canada to the mountains of northern Baja California in Mexico.

These data depict littoral cells along the West Coast of the United States, as polygon extents across the shoreline of Washington, Oregon, and California. A littoral cell is a reach of the coast that is isolated sedimentologically from adjacent coastal reaches and that features its own sources and sinks. Isolation is typically caused by protruding headlands, submarine canyons, inlets and some river mouths that prevent littoral sediment from one cell to pass into the next (Beachapedia). The data are a compilation of existing data sources from Washington Department of Ecology (WDOE), Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP), and California Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup (CSMW). There are two companion data...

These data represent modeled stream temperatures for a portion of a larger dataset known as the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) (http://greatnorthernlcc.org/). This metadata record is a combined description for two spatial data feature types, vector lines and points, which cover the same geographic area. The line features are derived from NHDPlus (http://www.horizon-systems.com/NHDPlus/index.php) (USEPA and USGS, 2010) stream lines and the point data represent 1 km intervals along the NHDPlus stream network. Both datasets contain identical modeled stream temperature attributes. These modeled stream temperatures were generated as part of the U.S. Forest Service NorWeST stream temperature...
