Species Conservation Landscapes (SCL) are mapped for each species at each time point by combining maps from Earth Observations from remote sensing, compiled maps of the Human Footprint, on-the-ground observations, and a series of species specific rules. Inputs include:

Mapping SCL requires several steps, which in turn generate important intermediary analyses of species habitat.

The results of the analysis are available range-wide and for each range country through the map and data access page on this website.
