GIS mapping of aquatic resources for the Laguna De Santa Rosa valley basin. This mapping effort represents a demonstration of the North Coast Aquatic Resource Inventory (NCARI) mapping standards. This data has been incorporated into CARI.
Please view the NCARI SOP for more information about NCARI maping methods.
The North Coast WRAMP Demonstation Project focused on mapping and assessing the condition of aquatic resources within the Santa Rosa Plain, CA using GIS based mapping protocols consistent with BAARI. A new regional Mapping Standards Methodology (NCARI) was developed to add regional wetland types not covered in BAARI's documentation.
The Santa Rosa Plain WRAMP project demonstrated the use of the State’s standardized monitoring and assessment tools in a North Coast watershed setting and described how the results can support watershed based management and planning decisions to protect and manage the state’s wetlands at a landscape scale.
