Title: 40 Square Km Hexagon Coverage over Region 7 (ECO_RES.ECO_SECT_40KHEX)
Abstract: ECO_SECT_40KHEX is a boundary file of over 33,000 forty-square kilometer hexagons across EPA Region 7 ecosections.
Purpose: The 40 K hexagon boundaries were used by GIS analysts at EPA Region 7 as assessment units in various GIS analyses including "Irreplaceability" (utilizing C-Plan conservation software). These boundaries were originally created by the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP), the purpose of which is to develop the tools necessary to monitor and assess the status and trends of national ecological resources.
