News

Virginia ConservationVision, developed and maintained by the Department of Conservation and Recreation, is a suite of broadly applicable tools for guiding strategic conservation decisions. ConservationVision, originally developed as the Virginia Conservation Lands Needs Assessment, is maintained using GIS (geographic information system) analyses to model and map land conservation priorities in Virginia based on a variety of datasets from private, local, state and federal agencies. The models facilitate conservation by helping target conservation efforts and by guiding comprehensive planning (green infrastructure). They are available on Natural Heritage Data Explorer, LandScope Virginia and LandScope Chesapeake, and DCR's website. ConservationVision allows the manipulation of issue-specific data sets that can be weighted and overlaid to reflect the needs and concerns of a variety of conservation partners.
