[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Siting Wetlands in the Alluvial Mississippi Plain (SWAMP) Decision Support System represents the culmination of a suite of ecological and conservation data sets on the Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV). The MAV is the largest floodplain in North America and one if it's most biologically diverse ecoregions, has experienced extensive ecological degradation over the last century. Currently, the MAV is the focus of significant restoration efforts from various sectors, including governmental, non-profit, and private. SWAMP provides access to these data sets through an interactive and educational interface.
