The attached pdf file is an extensive compilation including over 200 resources for spatial data and analysis tools useful to enhance protection and restoration or rehabilitation of the nation’s waters.  About half provide access to analytical tools; roughly a quarter provide point, grid, or vector data; while less than 10% point to geographic frameworks or to decision support systems.  Information collected for each resource includes (when available) name, Web site, keywords, description, uses, ecosystems and stressors, related tools, examples, additional information, minimum software requirement, required expertise, technical support, developer, and contact information.

GEOSPATIAL PERSPECTIVES TOOLBOX: SPATIAL DATA AND TOOLS DATABASE

AUTHORS Greg Hellyer, US EPA New England Regional Lab, North Chelmsford, MA Peter Leinenbach, US EPA Region 10, Portland, OR Jeff Hollister, US EPA Office of Research and Development, Cincinnati, OH Naomi Detenbeck, US EPA Office of Research and Development, Narraganset, RI Susan Cormier, US EPA Office of Research and Development, Cincinnati, OH Jan Ciborowski, University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario Don Ebert, US EPA Office of Research and Development, Las Vegas, NV and Ann Lincoln, Tetra Tech Inc., Owings Mills, MD

SUMMARY The attached pdf file is an extensive compilation including over 200 resources for spatial data and analysis tools useful to enhance protection and restoration or rehabilitation of the nation’s waters. About half provide access to analytical tools; roughly a quarter provide point, grid, or vector data; while less than 10% point to geographic frameworks or to decision support systems. Information collected for each resource includes (when available) name, Web site, keywords, description, uses, ecosystems and stressors, related tools, examples, additional information, minimum software requirement, required expertise, technical support, developer, and contact information.
