Development of a Comprehensive GIS Base for the Great Lakes Basin

To faciliate sharing of data and holistic management of the Great   Lakes basin, GIS-based classifications of aquatic ecological units   are being assembled. This will include map-delineated spatial units   and associated habitat and biological attribute data for   terrestrial, tributary rivers, nearshore, and offshore ecosystems.   This system would serve as the fundamental base map on which to   compile and view landscape-scale inventory of Great Lakes Basin   aquatic resources.    Objectives:  1) Develop seamless, standardized, habitat-based GIS projects for   the Great Lakes.  2) Develop a collaborative plan and establish institutional   arrangements for long-term data sharing, development, distribution,   training and maintenance of Great Lakes GIS databases.     (GIS); (geographic information system); (geographic information   systems); (geographical information system); (geographical   information systems); (landscape)
