Transcript

  • 1. Joey Wisby GIS Manager Tennessee Chapter of The Nature Conservancy
  • 2. Relational Databases (MS Access)  Data Management  Modeling  Input/Output GIS (ArcGIS)  Spatial Relationships  Mapping Results  Visualizatioin/Interaction  Capture & Organize Information about 8 Elements  Detailed  Comprehensive  Spatially Explicit  Define relationships between elements  Use models to allow evaluation and prioritization
  • 3. Sources: • TDEC Natural Heritage • TVA Heritage • TWRA Non-Game Inventory Program • TWRAAquatic Database (TADS) • Scientific Collection Permits • Various Others – BISON, etc. Faunal Group 2005 2013 Aquatic 5,268 22,035 Subterranean 961 6,000+ Terrestrial 19,396 47,525 Mollusk Hosts n/a 131,008
  • 4. Species Conservation Priority Score: • Weight by Rarity/Legal Status • G Rank (40 pts) • S Rank (40 pts) • Federal Status (10 pts) • TN State Status (10 pts) • Exponential (G1 = 40, G2 = 20, G3 = 10, etc) •Viability/Confidence Scores for Observations • Last Observation Date (old records, less points) • Heritage EO Ranks Where Available
  • 5. • Terrestrial Occurrences Linked to 700-acre hexagon clusters called rosettes • Aquatic Occurrences Linked to NHDPlus Flowlines & Associated Catchments • Subterranean Observations Linked to Cave Systems • Cave system entrances linked to 100-acre hexagons
  • 6. • Assume mapped semi-natural habitat restored to dominant matrix forest type within subregion • Use restored habitat preference scores (P) for existing GCN occurrences in/around semi-natural habitat Net Restoration Priority = Restored Score – Current Semi-natural Score  If had antecedent or other potential restoration habitat map, could use to dictate restoration scenario
