The Southeast Longleaf Ecosystems Occurrences Geodatabase (LEO GDB) is a project to develop a comprehensive map database of documented longleaf pine locations and ecological conditions across the range. Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) is working in partnership with the Longleaf Alliance to build the LEO GDB with funding from Natural Resources Conservation Service(NRCS) via the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and in close conjunction with the America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative - Longleaf Partnership Council, and other partners. This range-wide effort is modeled after the Florida Longleaf Pine Geodatabase , created by the Florida Forest Service and FNAI, which houses data for almost 2 million acres of existing longleaf pine in Florida. The LEO GDB will enable partners to track longleaf acres and condition, and will be useful in conservation and cost-share planning efforts at the LIT level and regionally.
The LEO GDB v.1.1 is now available to ALRI Partners. See the Links below for the LEO GDB v.1 report, quick summary, and data license. To access the LEO GDB data and Web Map please fill out and return the LEO GDB License Agreement to the LEO Data Steward (email).
