Using LandScope Chesapeake, USGS Geographer Streamlines Conservation and Preservation of Ecologically Significant Areas in the Watershed

Renee Thompson is a geographer as USGS, Chesapeake Bay Program Office

As the Coordinator of the Maintain Healthy Watersheds Goal Implementation Team, Renee Thompson is focused on conserving and preserving those areas that the Bay Watershed States have identified as high value or ecologically significant. She uses LandScope Chesapeake to visualize the healthy watersheds and to overlay them with the Protected Lands data to get an idea of areas her and her team may want to begin targeting for more detailed threat analysis.

“This service saves me time… with all the built in map reference layers it is even easier to visualize and answer a number of conservation related questions.”
