Purpose of the State Resource Assessment
The goal of the State Resource Assessment (SRA) of Arkansas was to couple the local expert knowledge from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) staff and their conservation partners; to build Geographic Information System (GIS) models that represent the extent and distribution of relevant potential natural resource concerns. The SRA projects were initiated by the national NRCS headquarters during the spring of 2011.


This phase I report summarizes the GIS methodologies applied by the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) for the first phase of this project. CAST prepared this project summary report for the dissemination of the phase I model results to the Arkansas NRCS staff and their conservation partners.
