The Land Conservation Plan for New Hampshire's Coastal Watersheds
The Nature Conservancy, New Hampshire Chapter - 2006

New Hampshire’s coastal watersheds harbor exceptional and irreplaceable natural, cultural, recreational and scenic resources.  This innovative planning effort was a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, Rockingham Planning Commission, Strafford Regional Planning Commission, and the New Hampshire Estuaries Project.  Pete served as chief GIS analyst, cartographer, and participating writer.
Map:  Focus Areas (PDF, 3mb)
This map was produced as part of the Land Conservation Plan.  The conservation focus areas displayed on this map represent weeks of meticulous analysis of the coastal watersheds' unique natural resources.

As a benefit to conservation practitioners across the coastal watershed, conservation focus area maps were produced for each town and provided to the local conservation commission.  Using automated cartographic techniques, Pete created a suite of maps for each of the 22 towns in the watershed.

Forest Soils & Biodiverstiy Map:  Forest Soils and Biodiversity (PDF, 2mb)
Taken together, forest and wetlands are the dominant natural land cover types of New Hampshire. Forests alone account for over 80% of the total land cover of the state. Soils are intimately associated with forests and wetlands, both determining the structure and composition of the plant communities they support.
