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.
