What is the Integrated Assessment?
The Integrated Assessment (IA) is an integrated analysis of WLCI resource values based on best available data and information. It is a support tool for landscape-scale conservation planning and evaluation (EC, CT, LPDTs) as well as a data and analysis resource which can be used for addressing specific agency management questions. To present the information in an easy to understand and search format - the values found in the integrated assessment are displayed using a map. The information found on the map can be used to answer simple and complex "where" questions and as a science-based framework for conservation planning and evaluation.
How do I use the Integrated Assessment Map?
Values for the IA can be found for each subwatershed (National Hydrography Dataset, HUC 12/Level 6) in the study area. To see these values, click on the subwatershed of interest. A pop-up will appear which will include the values for that subwatershed. For more in-depth information from the assessment - click on the tabs found inside the pop-up. (Note - scores for subwatersheds that extend outside of the WLCI only include values from inside the WLCI boundary.)
