Map: Southern Great Plains Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool

Abstract
The Southern Great Plains Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool (SGP CHAT) is a spatial model put together to designate and prioritize areas for Lesser prairie-chicken (LEPC) conservation activities and industry development. As such, it plays a duel role in that it is used to encourage development activities to occur outside of high priority areas as well as monitor activities that occur in each of the categories. In many ways it is the spatial representation of the LEPC Range Wide Plan (RWP). Another purpose of this dataset is to create an online tool usable by conservation managers, industry, and the public that identifies priority habitat, including connecting corridors that can be used in the early stages of development or conservation planning. By providing a consistent layer, used by all, we help target both conservation and development in areas that provide the greatest overall benefits to LEPC.
