This report describes the methods and approach used to develop a common, consistent map of terrestrial habitats for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region to guide wildlife management and conservation across jurisdictional borders, and aid in the implementation of State Wildlife Action Plans. The map is also intended to inform The Nature Conservancy’s and other conservation efforts across the Northeast region by allowing users to assess the distribution and condition of the region’s habitats and implement cross-border conservation planning. Finally, the map is intended to be compatible with similar efforts undertaken by the national GAP Analysis (Jennings 1996) and LANDFIRE (Rollins 2009) programs.
