Central CoastRegional Resource Kit

The resource kit contains a core set of data layers that reflect management-relevant metrics for the California Central Coast region. These data and metrics have been vetted by federal, state, and academic scientists. In total, the Central Coast Regional Resource Kit contains 61 metrics selected to be informative, meaningful, and actionable for management.

Additional Details
Most data layers are available at 30 m resolution (i.e. pixels are 30 meters on a side), and some are available at the resolution of the original data set (e.g. the climate refugia data are 270 meter pixel resolution).

Each data layer is available for viewing as an image and the full data can also be downloaded as a zip file.

Framework For Resilience

The metrics are organized by ten desired outcomes, termed “Pillars of Resilience” from the Framework for Resilience. The metrics describe the characteristics of one of the pillars in quantitative or, in a few cases, qualitative terms.


Additional Details

All data layers are available at 300 m resolution (i.e. pixels are 300 meter on a side) and some are also available at 30 m resolution. The same data layers are also available rescaled to a value of -1 to +1 to put all data layers in the same units for additional analytical work among metrics and pillars.

Metric Dictionary

A metric dictionary for the Central Coast Regional Resource Kit provides details on the nature of each metric. Each metric has been defined to help end-users of the data (and for use with any decision support tools) to understand:

  • The definition of a given metric
  • The expected use(s) of the metric
  • The resolution of the developed data
  • The data sources used to derive the metric
  • The method of metric derivation
  • The root file names

References have been included to help the reader understand potential methods for deriving metrics.
