This project attempts to automate the identification of IUCN Protected Area Categories for protected areas in the United States.

This utility downloads and parses the USGS Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US), and generates a collection of pages that show the tagging status of IUCN Categories for these areas. Mappers can use this data as a resource when determining whether an area should be tagged with protect_class=*.
