NOAA Watershed Database and Mapping Projects

Websites - Institutional website
NOAA's Coastal Protection and Restoration Division (CPRD) has developed an integrated assessment tool that combines a computer database and database-mapping programs. This approach allows scientists to analyze a variety of data (such as sediment contaminant concentrations, tissue data, aquatic species occurrence, and habitat characteristics) in combination with a watershed's features and land uses. This information is displayed on maps at various spatial scales, simplifying data presentation and improving our understanding of dynamic aquatic ecosystems.
