Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Centralized Oregon Mapping Products and Analysis Support System (Compass)
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Centralized Oregon Mapping Products and Analysis Support System, or Compass, provides valuable information for making informed land use decisions related to Oregon’s fish and wildlife habitats, in particular when working with energy, transportation, conservation and other large-scale projects. This easy to use mapping tool will help conserve Oregon landscapes crucial to the health of fish and wildlife by providing easy access to spatial information on species, habitats and natural resources. The Compass Data and Resources webpages provide additional documentation and details on the ODFW crucial habitat layers, access to downloading ODFW datasets, and links to supplementary online resources, such as the Oregon Conservation Strategy.
Examples of data layers available through ODFW Compass include:
- Terrestrial and Aquatic Species of Concern
- Terrestrial Species of Economic and Recreational Importance
- Wetlands and Riparian Areas
- Freshwater Integrity
- Landscape Connectivity and Large Natural Areas
- ODFW datasets: Conservation Opportunity Areas, Sage-Grouse Core Areas, Fish Passage Barriers, and Big Game Winter Range
- Access to data provided by partner agencies such as real-time fire information and transportation data
Oregon crucial habitat layers and other ODFW datasets are available for download through the Compass Data Page.
