Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Reports
Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Pilot Project
The aim of the Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project is to identify potential land conservation opportunities within the trail’s viewshed, and develop a conservation assessment that scores and ranks priority lands. The results of this analysis will be used to provide organizations and project partners with a conservation and visual assessment report to assist with local conservation efforts.
This report describes the methodology for assessing land conservation priorities related to the viewsheds of the Circuit Trails within suburban and rural areas. The methodology reviewed by the project steering committee will be applied to selected trails in the Circuit system. The goals of this analysis are two-fold. The first goal is to identify potential conservation needs based on a trail’s viewshed and second, to develop a conservation assessment and ranking of these priority lands.
