What is the Gap Analysis Program?

The Gap Analysis Program (GAP) is a state-based cooperative effort to map major indicators of biodiversity over states, along with the existing network of conservation lands. The indicators of biodiversity that the GAP state projects map using geographic information system (GIS) technology are dominant vegetation types (e.g., oak-hickory-hemlock forest) and distributions of each native vertebrate species.

The program is made up of over 400 cooperating organizations nationwide, including businesses, governments, and universities.
