SSHIAP AquaScape Interactive Mapping Application


The SSHIAP information system is designed for watershed-, basin-, and regional-scale habitat analyses to focus salmonid protection and restoration efforts, and to detect trends in habitat over time. It is well suited for salmon production modeling efforts like those completed for the Skagit and Stillaguamish basins, and the recent Ecosystem Diagnosis and Treatment (EDT) analysis for all of the Columbia basin, lower Columbia tributaries, and Puget Sound Chinook. Data requests are currently handled on a case-by-case basis with assistance from a regional biologist. Other products currently in development include:

  1. A web-based, map-driven interface that will enable users to generate their own data summaries and GIS coverages of SSHIAP segments.
  2. Cleaned and routed hydrography layers.
