As a collaborative, LCCs seek to identify best practices, connect efforts, identify gaps, and avoid duplication through improved conservation planning and design. Partner agencies and organizations coordinate with each other while working within their existing authorities and jurisdictions. Secretarial Order No. 3289 establishes Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), a network of public-private partnerships that provide shared science to ensure the sustainability of America's land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) recognize that these challenges transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a more networked approach to conservation—holistic, collaborative, adaptive and grounded in science to ensure the sustainability of America's land, water, wildlife and cultural resources.

Collaborative data development could achieve more than individual projects Limited by restrictions on data sharing Consistent, high resolution land cover needed across region Could help coordinate LiDAR Climate, energy development, human impacts, ecological processes
Most require additional capacity for developing applications Esri – based map applications spreading, some are outdated ArcIMS sites
Additional server capacity needed for large datasets Challenging to piece together data from existing portals / clearinghouses Cloud infrastructure is worth evaluating
