Ag Data Commons Maintenance - Thursday 04/15/2021

The Ag Data Commons technical team needs to apply security updates to the system. This maintenance will take place on Thursday, April 15, 2021, between 7:00 am ET and 10:00 am ET. The website and application may experience brief, intermittent outages during this period. Avoid adding or editing datasets during this period to prevent losing information. This notice will be removed once maintenance is complete.

NorWeST Stream Temperature Regional Database and Model

    The NorWeST webpage hosts stream temperature data and climate scenarios in a variety of user-friendly digital formats for streams and rivers across the western U.S. Temperature data and model outputs, registered to NHDPlus stream lines, are posted to the website after QA/QC procedures and development of the final temperature model within a river basin.

    Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP)

      Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) is designed to help land managers learn about the impacts of road systems on erosion and sediment delivery to streams. GRAIP couples analytical tools with an inventory process to build an approach to roads analysis that can be locally calibrated in a repeatable fashion and with minimal effort. The full scope of GRAIP includes methods to inventory roads and analyze the inventory for surface erosion, gully risk, landslide risk and stream crossing failure risks. Methods to measure road surface erosion from sample sites are also included.

      Climate Shield Cold-Water Refuge Streams For Native Trout: ArcGIS Online map

        The Climate Shield website hosts geospatial data and related information that describes specific locations of cold-water refuge streams for native Cutthroat Trout (*Oncorhynchus clarkii*) and Bull Trout (*Salvelinus confluentus*) across the American West. Forecasts about the locations of refugia could enable the protection of key watersheds, inform support among multiple stakeholders, and provide a foundation for planning climate-smart conservation networks that improve the odds of preserving native trout populations through the 21st century.

        The Range-Wide Bull Trout eDNA Project - USFS RMRS

          The bull trout (*Salvelinus confluentus*) eDNA survey results Online Map allows users to view the survey results in an interactive map by coupling 1) predictions from the range-wide, spatially precise Climate Shield model on the location of natal habitats of bull trout with 2) a sampling template for every 8-digit hydrologic unit in the historical range of bull trout, based on the probability of detecting bull trout presence using environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling. The map provides the ability to zoom in and look at an area of interest, as well as to create queries or select an area to download points as a shapefile.

          Northern Region (Region 1) Geospatial Data

            The Northern Region (R1) of the U.S. Forest Service uses ArcGIS Online to share maps, data, and applications for use by other federal agencies, partners, and the public. This gallery displays some of the web map applications developed by the Region and our Forests.

            Intermountain Region (Region 4) Geospatial Data

              The GIS datasets available from this site are provided in ESRI .shp. All data available for download uses the current National ADS Standard codes. Many of the data files have also been zipped for compression. Each zipped file will contain ADS boundary and damage layers, and ADS GIS Handbooks and appendices.

              NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Columbia River Basin

                The Columbia River Basin provides habitat for salmon and steelhead, essential components of a healthy ecosystem and critical to Indian tribes and local communities. Loss of quality habitat because of pressures from population growth threaten fish numbers and the overall health of the basin. With this Critical Conservation Area designation, USDA will build on existing strong partnerships in the basin to work with agricultural producers to improve water quality and quantity in order to restore critical components of salmon habitat, aid in the recovery of Pacific salmon, and protect public health and the environment while maintaining a strong agricultural sector. The boundary of the CCA is a portion of the Columbia River Basin that includes essential fish habitat. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

                GRACEnet Soil Biology Network

                  The GRACEnet Soil Biology mission is to produce the soil biology data, including methods of identifying and quantifying specific organisms and processes they govern, that are needed to evaluate impacts on agroecosystems and sustainable agricultural practices.
