Geospatial Analysis and Mapping
The Upper Midwest Water Science Center utilizes geospatial information analyses and tools to enhance the science and products we deliver. Whether it's tracking a contaminant down a stream or mapping our findings so they can be more easily understood, we use our geospatial expertise to create products that are focused on advancing our science and meeting our cooperators’ needs. Our specialized Web Informatics and Mapping (WIM) team develops web-based tools that support USGS science and other federal science initiatives. They use their advanced knowledge of cartography and web technologies to produce full-featured database applications, limited-scope data visualizations, digital cartography, data management and analysis, and decision support.
