National Coordinated Common Resource Areas (CRA) Geographic Database

A Common Resource Area (CRA) map delineation is defined as a geographical area where resource concerns, problems, or treatment needs are similar. It is considered a subdivision of an existing Major Land Resource Area (MLRA) map delineation or polygon. Landscape conditions, soil, climate, human considerations, and other natural resource information are used to determine the geographic boundaries of a Common Resource Area.

The National Coordinated CRA Geographic Database provides:
1. A consistent CRA geographic database;
2. CRA geographic data compatible with other GIS data digitized from 1:250,000 scale maps, such as land use/land cover, political boundaries, Digital General Soil Map of the U.S. (updated STATSGO), and ecoregion boundaries;
3. A consistent (correlated) geographic index for Conservation Management Guide Sheet information and the eFOTG;
4. A geographic linkage with the national MLRA framework.
