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
