Historical and modern views of San Francisco Bay Baylands
The EcoAtlas Baylands Maps (Baylands Maps) provide environmental data and information about the San Francisco Estuary and its watersheds. The Baylands Maps are a Geographic Information System (GIS) used to support local and regional environmental planning and management. They represent the integration of many kinds of information from numerous sources. They are a picture of the environmental past, the present, and change. They provide the most detailed regional views of past and present conditions that are available at this time. They are also a spatial template to view possible scenarios for environmental management in the future, and a geographic index for spatially-related data and their sources.
The Baylands Maps were used to support the San Francisco Estuary Baylands Ecosystem Goals.
