Oklahoma Ecological System Mapping

The Oklahoma Biological Survey (OBS), in conjunction with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC), Great Plains and Gulf Coast Prairie Lanscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and the Missouri Resource Assessment Partnership (MoRAP) produced a revised land cover dataset for the state of Oklahoma. Improvements in both thematic (number of types mapped) and spatial resolution of the revised land cover dataset  enhance efforts to identify and conserve species, communities, and landscapes.  Survey personnel collected ground data at 3684 points for the project and Survey personnel assisted with classification and mapping.
