Project-Specific GIS Sites

This section contains descriptions and links to interactive mapping Web sites. Many of these are project specific. Some, like the Marine Resources GIS site, provide a broad range of data layers and offer data download capability. Others, like the FWC Wading Bird Locator site, have a narrow focus providing species-specific information.



Marine Resource GIS (MRGIS) Internet Map Service (IMS)

The MRGIS Internet Map Server allows users to view spatial data, create customized queries, design printable maps, and download GIS layers for desktop GIS. Site includes information about manatees, corals, turtles, and harmful algal blooms.

Terrestrial Resource GIS (TRGIS) Internet Mapping Service (IMS)

The TRGIS Internet Map Server allows users to view spatial data, create customized queries, design printable maps, and download GIS layers for desktop GIS. Site includes download information regarding metadata and zipped shape files.

Florida Wildlife Legacy Initiative (FWLI)

The Florida Wildlife Legacy Initiative site provides access to geographic data associated with the Florida Wildlife Legacy Initiative and its Wildlife Action Plan, including Critical Lands and Waters Identification Project (CLIP) GIS layers.

Water Bird Locator

This Web mapping application provides users access to information from water bird colony datasets covering the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Associated metadata and downloadable datasets are available.

FWC Freshwater Fish Stocking Locator

The FWC Freshwater Fish Stocking Locator provides information from freshwater fish stocking datasets covering the following time periods: 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11.  Users may search for stocking details of specific water bodies.  Downloadable data are available.

USCG Geographic Response Plan (GRP) Mapping

This Web mapping application provides provides a means of visualizing and querying Geographic Response Plan data and information for all sectors within the United States Coast Guard (USCG) District 7 and for Sector Mobile of USCG District 8.

NOAA Acropora Inventory

The NOAA Acropora Inventory mapping application provides users the means to view Acropora spp. presence/absence data for Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Unified Florida Reef Tract Map

The Unified Florida Reef Tract Map (Unified Reef Map) provides a consistent geospatial framework for management, monitoring, and characterization of the Florida reef tract from Martin County to the Dry Tortugas. The Unified Reef Map integrates existing benthic habitat maps of Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami Counties, Biscayne National Park, Florida Bay, and the Florida Keys, including the Dry Tortugas.

Florida Reef Tract Temperatures

The Florida Reef Tract Temperature Data mapping application provides the ability to spatially view who is collecting temperature data throughout the Florida Keys.
