Southern Idaho Infrastruture Development Map (2009)
Proposed energy and electrical transmission development in Idaho may affect or be affected by a number of resource values of concern: wildlife habitat, viewsheds, military training areas, wilderness and others.
In 2009, the BLM developed the Southern Idaho Infrastructure Development Map ("Conflict Map") to display general areas of greater or lesser potential conflicts with infrastructure development, based on a selected resource concerns and assumptions. Additional information can be found in the Overview and Assumptions documents via the links below.
The map is by no means comprehensive. Issues such as resource management plan decisions, habitat for sensitive species, cultural resource sites and others are best addressed at the project level. Additional input by local experts and the public during project planning is still crucial.
Geographic Information System (GIS) raster data for the Conflict Map are available for download at www.insideidaho.org. At the home page, navigate to "GEODATA" and select "Browse Data." At the "Title Keywords(s)" search window, enter the word "Conflict" and select "Go."
