Conservation Design

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.

Brook Trout Thermal Habitat Forecasts Catoctin Mountain Park, Maryland & Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

Users can zoom-in to an area of interest and then compare current conditions against various future scenarios (3 levels of air temperature change x 3 levels of GW sensitivity to air temperature change). The interpretation is simple: red sites are too warm (MWAT > 23 C) and blue sites have suitable temperatures.
