Info on Conservation Planning Atlas

The North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NALCC) 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.

Data can be searched, viewed, and used in analyses. Additionally, you can upload your own data to your 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 created and curated. It 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. The CPA was created in an effort to help fulfill the mission of the NALCC and to create a common platform and communication method for the partnership. For more information about projects related to the North Atlantic LCC you may want to visit our Projects page on our main website.
