Title: Forest Conservation Opportunity Areas - Liberal Model (ECO_RES.COA_FORREST33)
Abstract: This layer designates areas with potential for forest conservation. These are areas of natural or semi-natural forest land cover patches that are at least 75 meters away from roads and away from patch edges. OAs were modeled by creating distance grids using the National Land Cover Database and the Census Bureau's TIGER roads files.
Purpose: The purpose of the OAs is to aid in the process of developing detailed conservation plans that incorporate additional data on conservation targets and evaluate design issues such as reserve size and position.
