Description: 
The recently published Science Framework for Conservation and Restoration of the Sagebrush Biome (C&R Strategy) provides a strategic approach that supports management decisions across the sagebrush biome. �U.S. Geological Survey scientists along with Federal and State partners are developing a core set of data, models, and a web-based geospatial tool for the C&R Strategy to support resource planning needs in the sagebrush biome. �Initial efforts are focused on making data and derived products associated with the C&R Strategy available and useable by a wide audience, ranging from managers and decision makers to GIS professionals and resource specialists.� Key functions associated with the web application include: 1) spatial data discovery and exploration; 2) desktop analysis of predefined or user-defined areas of interest; and 3) data summarization and generation of reports.� This work is capitalizing on previous and ongoing research and development projects that are focused on large landscape conservation.� The initial public release of the application is planned for December 2017.
