ABSTRACT
This raster dataset has been created using the "National Elevation Dataset (NED)" seamless download as originated by the US Geological Survey. Conservation values were determined by experts gathered by NLT for the Conservation Science Forum. Slopes 0 - 25% were assigned a value of 0. Slopes 25% - 40% were assigned a value of 1. Slopes greater that 40% were given a value of 3. Conservation values were determined by experts gathered by Natural Lands Trust through SmartConservation®. This data set is one of several that have been combined to create an overall terrestrial resources conservation value raster for the High Allegheny Plateau Ecoregion. Therefore the values were determined as a relative rank, comparable in value only to the other input terrestrial resources data. Conservation value ranges from 1 - 10 with 10 being the highest value.
