South Atlantic Conservation Planning Atlas; South Atlantic LLC
The South Atlantic CPA is a free mapping portal designed to share
regional spatial data. Users can overlay multiple layers, create and
export maps, and download data. In addition to the Conservation
Blueprint, users will find information about connectivity, protected
lands, urban growth, and much more.
The Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) is a science-based mapping platform where conservation managers and LCC members can go to view, retrieve, and perform analyses on spatial information with specific conservation goals in mind.
Three portals have been created for the LCC network:
- the South Atlantic LCC (SA LCC)
- the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC (GCPO LCC)
- the Southeastern U.S.
Spatially explicit datasets, galleries, and maps are available in a hierarchical system:
Data can be searched, viewed, and used in analyses. Additionally,
users can upload their own data to their account to be used in
conjunction with these datasets.
The CPA provides a platform for LCCs to create galleries to showcase a cohesive collection of spatial information and supporting documentation. Several galleries are being showcased at each portal.
The CPA also allows its users to create groups of members from several organizations who may have the same conservation goals. Within a group, you can perform analyses, upload data, and share information for other group members to use.
