Habitat Needs Assessment GIS Query Tool for the Upper Mississippi River System
Entry ID: USGS_HABITAT_NEEDS_ASSESSMENT
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Habitat Needs Assessment (HNA) GIS Query Tool is an ArcView® GIS extension
that was developed to assist with a habitat needs assessment for the Upper
Mississippi River System (UMRS) Environmental Management Program. The query
tool is delivered as an ArcView 3.x extension and is packaged with
approximately 2 gigabytes of GIS data.

Users may query on a species and obtain habitat information, or they may query
on habitat to obtain species information. These queries are accomplished by
using matrices previously developed to associate a species' potential to occur
within various types of habitat. Various output products are generated as a
result of a user query. Habitat information is produced and presented to the
user in the forms of textual, graphical, tabular, and spatial information.
