The Simple Viewer is now updated with Conservation Blueprint 2.1! Following our commitment to continually revise the Blueprint, Version 2.1 represents strong improvements to many of our ecological indicators, particularly for the freshwater and marine ecosystems. You can now learn more about these improved indicators and explore Blueprint 2.1 within the Simple Viewer. Still an easy and intuitive tool, the Simple Viewer summarizes the Blueprint and indicators by sub-watersheds and marine lease blocks. It allows users to see how much Blueprint priority area for shared conservation action occurs within a selected area, the status of ecosystem indicators, projected landcover change over time in response to urbanization, and more.

While we work to improve the Blueprint, we are also interested in improving the way you can access and use it. We hope to develop some exciting new features within the Simple Viewer over the next few months, and we would love to work with you, our cooperative community, and hear your ideas about potential improvements. If you would like help using the Blueprint, please contact us. We are happy to provide tutorials, help support projects by assisting with analysis, integrating the Blueprint into funding proposals, and answering questions.
