Welcome.

The Appalachian LCC and the Eastern Brooktrout Joint Venture Partnership's open-source mapping platform "Conservation Design" is designed to support the conservation community and their diverse needs to view, create, and analyze spatial data and maps. This platform provides access to a suite of scientific data, relevant to a variety of conservation planning goals/tasks including the execution of custom designed decision support tools. These tools allow a manager or conservation practitioner to make dynamic scenario-based decisions using the most current scientific information.
