From the USGS website: "To remedy the lack of information, the USGS created this publicly available national dataset and interactive mapping application of wind turbines. This dataset is built with publicly available data, as well as searching for and identifying individual wind turbines using satellite imagery. The locations of all wind turbines, including the publicly available datasets, were visually verified with high-resolution remote imagery to within plus or minus 10 meters."

The Idaho Sage Grouse Task Force (SGTF) appointed by the Governor of Idaho, created an Idaho alternative in response to the BLM's, "A Framework to Identify Greater Sage-grouse Preliminary Priority Habitat and Preliminary General Habitat for Idaho" as seen at http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/id/wildlife/sensitive_species/sagegrouse_habitat.Par.90238.File.dat/Idaho_Sage-grouse_Priority_Areas_White_Paper_Final_April_26_2012_508.pdf The SGTF split the BLM's designated PPH and PGH into 4 'Conservation Areas', two located North of the Snake River and two South. The Conservation Areas are split into Management Zones attributed with Core, Important, and General. This shapefile is supporting information for the content within the 'DRAFT Federal Alternative of Governor C.L. Butch Ottter For Greater Sage-Grouse Management in Idaho, June 28th, 2012' at https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/sites/default/files/CLBO-Draft-Sag...
