While you review the draft Blueprint 2.0, you may be interested in digging in and exploring the data that forms the foundation of the Blueprint. Let’s take a quick tour of the Blueprint 2.0 data gallery, where you can find the underlying spatial data. Of course, the most important thing that you will find in this gallery is the Draft Blueprint 2.0 map. Check out Rua’s blog post and the Blueprint 2.0 metadata for details on how the draft Blueprint 2.0 was created.
If you’re like me, though, playing with the individual pieces will help clarify how Blueprint 2.0 was put together. In this gallery you will find the draft ecosystem map layer, which shows the spatial extent used to map the ecosystems in Blueprint 2.0. You can explore and download all of the spatial data for the individual indicators and the threat layers used in the workshops by visiting the “Indicators for Blueprint 2.0” and “Threat Layers for Blueprint 2.0” folders. In the next couple of weeks we will be uploading additional data to the “Ecosystem Indicator Scores for Blueprint 2.0” folder. This folder will contain the Zonation outputs for each individual ecosystem, which are intermediate spatial outputs that were created as we moved toward the draft Blueprint 2.0. We hope that providing these intermediate outputs will make the Blueprint 2.0 modeling process more transparent.
