Data Needs Assessment Foundational Research

The Data Needs Assessment research project was undertaken to review a variety of resources on conservation planning - such as datasets and tools - and provide packages of products, data, and identified gaps to improve conservation planning in the Appalachian LCC. A suite of core conservation planning products and data from principal investigators at Clemson University are found below. These products and information generated from this foundational assessment were incorporated into the Interactive Conservation Planning and Design effort and in the drafting of the regional conservation plan for the Cooperative.

Data GraphicAppalachian LCC Data Needs Assessment Final Report - provides recommendations on how LCC members and partners can use all the information assembled from this research to collect finer-scaled data from states, expand on work accomplished at individual state levels and “scale up” to the LCC level, and deliver data in a format that is useful for individual states and regional planning.
