Description:

Abstract:

The land stewardship map is a complete digital map (geodatabase) of land ownership boundaries that combines attributes of ownership, management, and a measure of intent to maintain biodiversity. The map includes: 1) Geographic boundaries of public land ownership and voluntarily provided private conservation lands (e.g., Nature Conservancy Preserves). 2) Owner, Manager, Parcel Name, and source of information of each mapped land unit 3) Gap status of each parcel based on current National Gap Status code categories of management for long-term conservation of biological diversity.

Purpose:

The land stewardship map was created for the purpose of describing the management status of elements of biodiversity and identifying potential gaps in habitat. It was developed to be used with additional datasets including predicted animal distribution and detailed landcover. The stewardship map, when combined with the other layers, can quantitatively show how much of each landcover type or species distribution is managed primarily for conservation purposes. This helps natural resource planners make more informed decisions about land managment. The idea is to keep common species common through conservation management. The stewardship map is intended to be used at a resolution of 100,000 or greater.
