The National Wetlands Inventory

Data is Plural: “The National Wetlands Inventory, maintained by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, provides interactive maps and bulk data containing “geospatially referenced information on the status, extent, characteristics and functions of wetland, riparian, deepwater, and related aquatic habitats.” With contributions from 160+ organizations, coordinated through a dedicated national standard, the inventory represents “more than 35 million wetland and deepwater features,” and continues to receive updates. As seen in: DIP reader Simon Greenhill and coauthors’ paper, dataset, explainer video, and map using machine learning to predict wetland and river protections under the Clean Water Act.”
