LandScope Chesapeake

The NPS Chesapeake Bay Office worked with NatureServe, Chesapeake watershed states, and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), to develop “LandScope Chesapeake” filling a need for a publicly accessible, watershed-wide land conservation priority system. Its purpose is to support collaboration among many partners in land conservation efforts throughout the Chesapeake region. The Chesapeake Conservation Partnership continues to significantly expand LandScope Chesapeake, including housing all of the mapping components of the Chesapeake Conservation Atlas on the site.
