Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP)

Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) is designed to help land managers learn about the impacts of road systems on erosion and sediment delivery to streams. GRAIP couples analytical tools with an inventory process to build an approach to roads analysis that can be locally calibrated in a repeatable fashion and with minimal effort. The full scope of GRAIP includes methods to inventory roads and analyze the inventory for surface erosion, gully risk, landslide risk and stream crossing failure risks. Methods to measure road surface erosion from sample sites are also included.

Climate Shield Cold-Water Refuge Streams For Native Trout: ArcGIS Online map

The Climate Shield website hosts geospatial data and related information that describes specific locations of cold-water refuge streams for native Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii) and Bull Trout (Salvelinus confluentus) across the American West. Forecasts about the locations of refugia could enable the protection of key watersheds, inform support among multiple stakeholders, and provide a foundation for planning climate-smart conservation networks that improve the odds of preserving native trout populations through the 21st century.

The Aquatic eDNAtlas Project: Lab Results Map - USFS RMRS

The eDNA samples in the eDNAtlas database describe species occurrence locations and were collected by the U.S. Forest Service and numerous agencies that have partnered with the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) throughout the United States. The eDNAtlas is accessed via an interactive ArcGIS Online (AGOL) map that allows users to view and download sample site information and lab results of species occurrence for the U.S. The results are primarily based on samples analyzed at the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation (NGC) and associated with geospatial attributes created by the Boise Spatial Streams Group (BSSG).

The Range-Wide Bull Trout eDNA Project - USFS RMRS

The bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) eDNA survey results Online Map allows users to view the survey results in an interactive map by coupling 1) predictions from the range-wide, spatially precise Climate Shield model on the location of natal habitats of bull trout with 2) a sampling template for every 8-digit hydrologic unit in the historical range of bull trout, based on the probability of detecting bull trout presence using environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling. The map provides the ability to zoom in and look at an area of interest, as well as to create queries or select an area to download points as a shapefile.

USDA/ARS Kimberly, ID - Furrow Infiltration and Erosion Data, 1998 to 2016

The data are derived from the field monitoring of irrigated furrows from 1998 to 2016 at the research farm of the USDA/ARS-Northwest Irrigation and Water Research Laboratory in Kimberly, Idaho, USA (south-central Idaho). For each monitored furrow, irrigation inflow rates, outflow rates, and sediment concentrations were recorded periodically during the irrigation. A gated pipe conveyed irrigation water across the plots at the head, or inflow-end, of the furrows and adjustable spigots supplied water to each irrigated furrow.

Northern Region (Region 1) Geospatial Data

The Northern Region (R1) of the U.S. Forest Service uses ArcGIS Online to share maps, data, and applications for use by other federal agencies, partners, and the public. This gallery displays some of the web map applications developed by the Region and our Forests.

Intermountain Region (Region 4) Geospatial Data

The GIS datasets available from this site are provided in ESRI .shp. All data available for download uses the current National ADS Standard codes. Many of the data files have also been zipped for compression. Each zipped file will contain ADS boundary and damage layers, and ADS GIS Handbooks and appendices.

NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Columbia River Basin

The Columbia River Basin provides habitat for salmon and steelhead, essential components of a healthy ecosystem and critical to Indian tribes and local communities. Loss of quality habitat because of pressures from population growth threaten fish numbers and the overall health of the basin. With this Critical Conservation Area designation, USDA will build on existing strong partnerships in the basin to work with agricultural producers to improve water quality and quantity in order to restore critical components of salmon habitat, aid in the recovery of Pacific salmon, and protect public health and the environment while maintaining a strong agricultural sector. The boundary of the CCA is a portion of the Columbia River Basin that includes essential fish habitat. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.
