NJDEP Forested Wetland Version 2.1
The Forested Wetland data set depicts critical area maps for forested wetland dependent species which are generated by selecting specific land-use classes from the NJDEP's LULC data set. This data set is a product of the Landscape Project, a pro-active, ecosystem-level approach to the long-term protection of imperiled and priority species and their important habitats in New Jersey. This version (version 2.1) was created by intersecting imperiled and priority species data with NJDEP 2002 Land use/Land cover Update. The resulting data layer identifies, delineates and ranks (based on the conservation status of species present) habitat statewide. Each patch is coded for the number of sightings of priority, state threatened, state endangered and federally listed species present. The data is designed to be used for state and local planning, open space acquisition and land-use regulation.
The purpose of this layer is to provide users with peer reviewed, scientifically sound wildlife data that is easily accessible and can be integrated with planning, protection and land management programs at every level of government (state, county, municipal) as well as non-governmental conservation organizations and private land owners.
