The Integrated Wildlife Habitat Ranking System 2009
The Integrated Wildlife Habitat Ranking System (IWHRS) ranks the Florida landscape based upon the habitat needs of wildlife as a way to identify ecologically significant lands in the state.

2003 Florida Vegetation and Land Cover
FWC staff used 2003 LandSAT Enhanced Thematic Mapper+ satellite imagery to create a digital dataset classifying the state into 43 vegetation and land cover types, including 26 natural and semi-natural vegetation types, 16 types of disturbed lands (such as agriculture, urban, and mining), and one water class

Florida Land Cover Classification System
A classification schema is needed for the Florida State Wildlife Action Plan. The current classification schemas used within Florida were investigated to determine if that classification could serve as a model to meet the needs of the Plan.

Wildlife Habitat Conservation Needs in Florida: Updated Recommendations for Strategic Habitat Conservation Areas
The results of this project have re-identified Strategic Habitat Conservation Areas for a new selection of focal species, including many species that were in the original 1994 report.

Mapping Florida's Altered Landscapes
This project mapped areas of Florida identified as "disturbed" or "non-natural" in order to enhance our understanding of the distribution of these land cover types
