Dataset was reviewed in another manner
NCC's Freshwater Resilience for the Northern Appalachian - Acadian Region GIS dataset is designed to spatially identify functionally connected networks that are most likely to be resilient in the face of climate change, and therefore maintain their full suite of biodiversity. The intended uses of the classification include, (1) providing common data across provincial and state boundaries to facilitate collaborative opportunities, (2) improving provincial-scale freshwater conservation and sustainable management by providing aquatic planning tools where none previously existed, (3) generating new knowledge on aquatic biodiversity patterns, (4) supporting the development of other aquatic tools to assess aquatic health, determine conservation and restoration priorities, and facilitate climate change adaptation planning
