Title: EPA Region 6 REAP Composite Geodatabse
Abstract: The Regional Ecological Assessment Protocol (REAP) is a screening level tool created as a way to identify priority ecological resources within the five EPA Region 6 states (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas). The REAP divides eighteen individual measures into three main sub-layers: diversity, rarity, and sustainability. This geodatabase contains the composite of these three layers. There are 2 composite grids within this geodatabase (composite & composite rank). The composite grid results from the sum of the 3 sub-layers with scores ranging from 3 to 300. The higher scores represent areas that may be of a higher ecological importance. The compositerank grid represents a ranking of the scores in the composite grid. Each cell is placed into 1 of the following 5 groups based on the score: 1 (top 1% of scores), 10 (top 10% of scores), 25 (top 25% of scores), 50 (top 50% of scores), and 100 (the bottom 50% of scores). See each individual feature class for more detailed metadata.
