SageCon Landscape Planning Tool

The SageCon Landscape Planning Tool is a web-based interactive map that allows anyone to view, explore and download spatial data related to sage-grouse habitat and threats in Oregon. The Viewer includes a wide range of datasets, from vegetation condition to themes rating areas in terms of fire and invasives threat, biodiversity significance, and energy development potential. Supplemental data layers are included in the Viewer such as previous wildfire perimeters, seasonal sage-grouse habitat, and sage-grouse habitat management boundaries. Users can also conduct customized querying and reporting to identify areas that meet user-defined criteria for targeting their work in southeastern Oregon.

Rangeland Vegetation Map Products

Many rangeland vegetation products are available throughout the west - see the curated list of products available in Oregon and across the region.

Invasives Initiative Geographic Strategy Maps

The SageCon Invasives Initiative released geographic strategy maps in October 2020 for addressing invasive annual grasses in Oregon rangelands. Data can be downloaded here and more information can be found on the Invasives Initiative webpage.

Southeast Oregon NN Vegetation Composition Map

The Southeast Oregon NN Vegetation Composition Map contains information on rangeland vegetation in Oregon and was produced in 2018 by the Institute for Natural Resources. This map estimates conditions from 2012-2017, and should be interpreted at mid-broad scales (>2,000 acres). The Ecological State map depicts the primary threats to the sagebrush ecosystem from a threat-based model of rangeland condition developed in the state of Oregon. Ecological state expresses condition as a letter grade from A (best condition) to D (worst condition) based primarily on a combination of Invasive Annual Grass Cover, Perennial Grass Cover, Sagebrush Cover, and Tree Canopy Cover (individual data layers also available). Maps of primary indicators (ecostates and major functional groups) can be viewed and downloaded from the SageCon Landscape Planning Tool, or all attributes can be obtained from the full map download. For more information on mapping of ecostates, see the Ecostate map description and for detailed technical documentation, see the NN Map Documentation.
