About the Heart of the Rockies Conservation Atlas

The Heart of the Rockies Conservation Atlas is delivering the latest science in climate change adaptation and habitat connectivity to our land trust partners to help identify and validate selection of future conservation targets. Our Science Coordinator is curating a collection of connectivity and climate data at a scale that is useful to on-the-ground practitioners. He is working with university and agency partners to identify, screen, and procure the data. 


This Atlas has a collection of spatial data specific to the conservation planning needs of our land trust partners. It is grouped into themed galleries: Connectivity, Habitat, Climate Change, Working Lands, and Planning.  Thousands of additional datasets are also available to users through this platform.
