In addition to making water quality data accessible, SFEI’s GIS Team compiles spatial datasets and metadata that are available for downloading from SFEI’s Data Center page.
Two recent additions include the Tahoe Aquatic Resource Inventory (TARI v2.1) and California Aquatic Resource Inventory (CARI v0.2). These datasets are used as the standardized statewide map of surface waters and related habitat types, including wetlands, rivers, streams, lakes, and their riparian areas, in EcoAtlas and are included in the visualization tool’s Landscape Profile report.

California's EcoAtlas provides access to information for effective wetland management. EcoAtlas is a set of tools for generating, assembling, storing, visualizing, sharing, and reporting environmental data and information. The tools can be used individually or together, and they can be adjusted or tuned to meet the specific needs of environmental planners, regulators, managers, scientists, and educators. The maps and tools can be used to create a complete picture of aquatic resources in the landscape by integrating stream and wetland maps, restoration information, and monitoring results with land use, transportation, and other information important to the state’s wetlands.
