A Resource for the Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US)


New PAD-US Help System is Online!

As part of the announcement of PAD-US 2.0, a new online help system for PAD-US has gone live on ProtectedLands.net!

This new help system covers a wide range of topics, from a short introduction to PAD-US to extensive details about how the data set works. GreenInfo Network developed the Word Press application for the Help and the initial information presented, while USGS PAD-US staff added to and refined the information.

The new PAD-US Help system will evolve as requests and comments come in and as the data changes.
