For a description of each map layer, select the Details tab, then select a Layer Name. This GIS dataset is part of a suite of wildlife habitat connectivity data produced by the Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group (WHCWG). The WHCWG is a voluntary public-private partnership between state and federal agencies, universities, tribes, and non-governmental organizations. The WHCWG is co-led by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT). This dataset quantifies current wildlife habitat connectivity patterns for the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Available WHCWG raster data include model base layers, resistance,...

This map represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's 'Pine Flatwoods and Dry Prairie' (PFDP) Priority Resource (PR). The potential CT is Landscape Configuration. . This layer was created for an initial investigation of potential CT's suggested at brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address the suggested CT as closely as possible and performing minimal analyses to determine their usefulness. The final set of CT's and their associated datasets will be chosen after targets (e.g., endpoints) are established as a threshold for achieving a conservation success for that CT. The available data layer to address landscape configuration is CLIP 4.0 core...

The dataset was produced by Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group (WHCWG) as part of their Columbia Plateau Climate-Gradient Corridors Analysis (WHCWG 2013). The purpose of layers created using the climate gradient linkage-modeling method (Nuñez et al. 2013) is to help inform conservation practitioners, land use planners, and interested stakeholders in their understanding of areas likely to be important for biota as species adapt their distributions to climatic change. The results using this method are exploratory and intended to be broad-scale and generic in nature, and are not intended to direct conservation resources to specific locations or organisms.

This raster combines linkages developed from four landscape integrity-derived resistance surfaces: linear, low sensitivity, medium sensitivity, and high sensitivity. See Section 2.5.2 WHCWG (2012) for additional information pertaining to development of the four landscape integrity-derived resistance rasters. Adjacent core areas within 100 km Euclidean distance of one another were connected.

These data represent the Landscape Integrity values from CLIP 4.0 within the Coastal Uplands Priority Resources of the Peninsular Florida LCC. These data were evaluated for their potential as an indicator of 'health' or 'status' of the Coastal Uplands.

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It is an exposure variable that represents the climate velocity for Rehfeldt biome-habitat types (from 2000 to 2060), where units are in km/year.

Summary analysis for climate informed conservation blueprint for the Sierra Club Resilient Habitats Campaign. Weighted sum of biodiversity (TNC- conservation opportunity), vegetation stability (MC1 analysis), and landscape integrity (WDFW).

The map is to demonstrate the Configuration (i.e., patch size and land use) context for the PFLCC Connectivity Priority Resource (PR). Analysis of the Connectivity PR for configuration was performed using the Landscape Integrity Model layer of CLIP 4.0. The Landscape Integrity index assess ecological integrity based on land use intensity and patch size of natural communities and semi-natural land uses.For a description of the PFLCC Connectivity Priority Resource see the map of the same name. The Connectivity PR was used as a mask on the landscape integrity (LSI) core layer of the CLIP 4.0 geodatabase. For this analysis, the LSI layer was resampled to 15 x 15m cell size from a 30 x 30 m cell size, however, the resolution...

Measures of ecological integrity are increasingly being used to monitor and evaluate the status and condition of their landscapes, and numerous methods have been developed to map the pattern of human activities. The ‘Human Modification – Transboundary (HMT)’ model is designed to provide a comprehensive, but parsimonious approach, that uses several stressor/threats datasets to estimate level of human modification. There are three important elements that define the HM approach: (a) the human modification stressors and their data sources (b) the measurement unit used for each stressor, and (c) the method used to combine the effects of multiple stressors into an overall score of human modification. The way in which...

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It represents terrestrially-defined adaptive capacity, where values run from 0 to 1.0 and is calculated as the complement of the degree of human modification (1-H). The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It represents hydrologically-defined adaptive capacity, where values run from 0 to 1.0 and is calculated as the complement of the degree of human modification (1-H), and are then averaged using hierarchical watersheds. The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

This dataset is one of a dozen or so datasets that provide the basis for a vulnerability assessment of the Great Northern LCC that examines land use and climate changes at landscape scales, for the full LCC boundary. It represents a combined measure of physiographic diversity (EH) and terrestrially-defined adaptive capacity (Ag). Values run from 0 to 1.0 and is calculated as: Agp = EH x Ag. The original floating point values ranging from 0-1.0 were multiplied by 100 and converted to integer format for this dataset.

This layer depicts a potential Conservation Target for PFLCC's Priority Resource: Freshwater Aquatics. The potential Conservation Target is the Connectivity of the Freshwater Aquatics. The layer was created using a 300-m buffer around the Priority Resource to mask the Landscape Integrity layer of CLIP 4.0 to depict the landscape surrounding the PR. This map was created during an initial investigation of data availability and usefulness for developing final Conservation Targets.
