Title: Class 1 Areas
Abstract: A "Class 1" area is a geographic area recognized by the EPA as being of the highest environmental quality and requiring maximum protection. Class I areas are areas of special national or regional scenic, recreational or historic value for which the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations provide special protection. These data were compiled based on EPA's list of mandatory Class I areas and Region 8 listing of non-mandatory Class 1 areas for three tribes. Spatial data are from National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and U.S. Census Bureau.
Purpose: Regional and state scale mapping and visualization.
