A webinar on the NJ Landscape Project is being offered to train users on this interactive ecosystem-based mapping tool that assists government agencies, planners, conservation groups, the public and others in making decisions that will protect imperiled and special concern wildlife.
The NJ Landscape Project Training and Information Webinar Session will take place on May 28, 2014, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
The Landscape Project is a pro-active, ecosystem-level approach for the long-term protection of imperiled species and their important habitats in New Jersey. The N.J. Division of Fish and Wildlife's Endangered and Nongame Species Program (ENSP) began the project in 1994. Its goal: to protect New Jersey's biological diversity by maintaining and enhancing imperiled wildlife populations within healthy, functioning ecosystems
This session will include an overview of the Landscape Project mapping method and applications and cover the updates and enhancements to the project and will provide participants an opportunity to use GIS "hands-on" to access habitat maps for threatened and endangered wildlife species.
Access to ArcGIS software is required in order to complete the ArcGIS exercise included in this Webinar. Participants with access to ArcGIS software will have to download the Landscape Project GIS files prior to the start of the Webinar in order to complete the ArcGIS exercise included in the Webinar. It is highly recommended that users download the File Geodatabase files.
Files can be downloaded from DEP's Bureau of GIS at http://www.state.nj.us/dep/gis/landscape.html#geodatabase
