|Descriptive name||County Stakeholder Wildlife Connectivity Reports: Crossings (AGFD 2009-13)|
|Abstract||The original full dataset contains information on wildlife linkages provided as part of the County-wide Wildlife Connectivity Assessments. This dataset is a subset of the original that shows wildlife crossing areas.|
The original dataset represents areas identified as important for wildlife movement and landscape connectivity in counties throughout Arizona. Data was generated from stakeholder input at workshops. This multi-agency, multi-disciplinary effort was undertaken to encourage biologists and non-biologists alike to incorporate information about wildlife linkages and strategies for their conservation into transportation corridor and project planning as well as other community projects and land-use decisions. The workshops provided a forum for stakeholders to learn more about wildlife connectivity, outline the general locations of wildlife linkages on large maps, and provide descriptive information about each linkage on datasheets. The linkages were then further refined to eliminate redundancy in the data.
In Pima County, AZGFD worked with the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and largely followed the Critical Landscape Connections broadly-defined in Pima County’s Conservation Lands System, as part of the county’s Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan.

|Lineage||Data obtained from AZGFD on 12-3-14. Reprojected to NAD83 HPGN and attribute table cleaned by Erik Glenn on 12-5-14. Original dataset was then split into three separate layers: 1) barriers and areas of development; 2) movement areas; and 3) crossing areas.|
