Although our rigorous, detailed plans are central to our approach, the ultimate
South Coast Missing Linkages
is not to produce reports, but to translate
our vision of a connected landscape into land-saving actions. With the publication
of the priority linkage reports, our focus in the South Coast shifts from planning
and design to implementation. We developed an innovative decision support system
to assist wildlife agencies and conservation organizations in the implementation
The dynamic, interactive, web-based application is designed to assist in
the implementation process. We developed a system that allows users to access data
in priority linkages through a map application. The application allows users to
view and query data (e.g., wildlife crossing structures, focal species models, species
occurrences, critical habitat, vegetation, APN, etc.), and create and print custom
maps. The system is designed to permit user transactions, so that pending or recent
acquisitions can be accounted for in an up-to-date protected lands database that
will not lose its utility over time. This innovative conservation tool allows us
to track the implementation of SCML, and help agencies and organizations strategically
plan their next conservation targets.
