Spatial Integration of Biological and Social Objectives to Identify Priority Landscapes for Waterfowl Habitat Conservation

April 26, 2019

The information and data presented herein serve as the supplement to the report, Spatial Integration of Biological and Social Objectives to Identify Priority Landscapes for Waterfowl Habitat Conservation. The purpose of this supplemental material is to encourage exploration of the methods used to develop the spatially explicit products presented in the report. The in depth step-by-step methodology is complemented with a geodatabase to facilitate future refinement of the model as new information becomes available in the future. To repeat the process of developing the spatially explicit products (or to create other composite spatial products by varying objectives and weights), follow the methodology described in the Supplemental Information document. Spatial data available for download includes 34 layers (20 waterfowl breeding and non-breeding objectives layers, 9 social objectives layers, and 5 raster mixed model layers) which can be accessed at https://doi.org/10.5066/P9L7J5U4. All sources of raw data are provided and should be cited accordingly. For availability of intermediate spatial products and other data included in the geodatabase contact the corresponding author. For further inquiries or comments about the products or results, contact the corresponding author.
