Vulnerability - Resource Lands Assessment
Author: John Wolf
Date created: Jan 23, 2008
The Resource Lands Assessment vulnerability layer evaluates the relative potential risk of future land conversion to urban uses. Vulnerability is defined as a function of suitability for development and proximity to growth "hot spots". The vulnerability layer is useful as a stand-alone layer to evaluate development trends, but can also be combined with the other RLA layers to prioritize land conservation efforts.
