Version 2.0 of the BAARI (Bay Area Aquatic Resource Inventory) GIS dataset has been released. Local aquatic resource experts worked with SFEI to update region specific aquatic features at a local and watershed scale. The new BAARI V 2.0 release includes the following updates:

  • Underground channels that connect the upper and lower watershed stream network in the Guadalupe River Watershed based on the Santa Clara Valley Water District's Creeks GIS data.
  • Addition of over 500 unnatural channel features in the Sonoma Creek Watershed based on field verified ditch locations from Watershed Sciences’ hand drawn maps circa 2006.
  • Addition of stream names for all nine Bay Area Counties.
  • Varous corrections of wetland and stream features and classification inaccuracies.

The dataset can be downloaded from SFEI’s Data Center page.​
