This folder contains links to tools that can assist natural resource managers when making decisions about Brook Trout conservation actions.
Interactive GIS map featuring data layers (Brook Trout status and habitat patches) and tools (riparian prioritization, drainage area calculator) developed and endorsed by the EBTJV.
The Appalachian Land Conservation Cooperative and the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture Partnership's open-source mapping platform is designed to support the conservation community and their diverse needs to view, create, and analyze spatial data and maps. This platform provides access to a suite of scientific data, relevant to a variety of conservation planning goals/tasks including the execution of custom designed decision support tools. These tools allow a manager or conservation practitioner to make dynamic scenario-based decisions using the most current scientific information.
This tool was created to provide resource managers and the general public with access to the extensive spatial data and results produced from multiple fish habitat assessments. Three main analytical tools (visualization, ranking, and futuring) are combined with intuitive base-maps and mapping features to allow users to explore the details of the assessments and perform subsequent analyses.
An innovative riparian planting and restoration decision support tool, this user-friendly tool allows managers and decision-makers to rapidly identify and prioritize areas along the banks of rivers, streams, and lakes for restoration, making these ecosystems more resilient to disturbance and future changes in climate.
The Interactive Catchment Explorer (ICE) is a dynamic visualization for exploring catchment characteristics and environmental model predictions. ICE is intended for resource managers and researchers to identify spatial patterns related to ecological conditions, identify priority locations for restoration or further study, and explore complex, multivariate environmental data-sets and model results.
