Data Identification
Abstract: Identification of potential ecological corridors between the MLCCS derived ecological patches (ear_eco08py3). This was generated using cost / distance analysis, finding the shortest connection through the best land cover types between the patches. Natural and semi-natural areas were the preferred route, followed by agriculture land, then areas with low imperviousness (little development). Connections through developed areas were made if that was the only choice. Only patches within 5 kilometers of each other were connected.
Purpose: The data is to help make regional scale land use decisions, especially as it relates to balancing development and natural resource protection.
