Habitat Mapping

 

In addition to on the ground monitoring, the Estuary Partnership has overseen the development of key habitat mapping products which have been funded through its monitoring program.  These data sets provide further characterization of river habitats, and have helped to inform site selection for on the ground monitoring locations.  Most of these data sets are, or will soon be accessible through our Downloadable GIS data.  Some of the key habitat mapping products that have been developed by the Estuary Partnership in recent years include the following:

Columbia River Estuary Ecosystem Classification
2009 High Resolution Land Cover
Historical Habitat Change Analysis
2010 Lower Columbia Elevation Model
2006 Shoreline Condition Inventory
