API stands for Application Programming Interface and provides a developer with programmatic access to a proprietary software application. An API is software that makes it possible for application programs to interact with each other and share data.
CWPPRA is the oldest and largest coastal restoration effort operating across coastal Louisiana and has constructed 105 restoration projects since its establishment over 20 years ago. WARC's Advanced Applications Team has proudly worked with the CWPPRA Task Force over the years to ensure timely and accurate project-specific information is publicly available.
The JEM community of practice is focused on ecological modeling and monitoring across the Greater Everglades, with particular interest in habitats, how various factors affect habitat change, and how the organisms dependent on those habitats respond today and into the future.
Working with the Joint Ecosystem Modeling (JEM) community of practice, the WARC Advanced Applications Team developed and maintains the EverVIEW Data Viewer desktop visualization platform, which allows users to easily visualize and inspect standards-compliant NetCDF modeling data and has experienced tremendous feature growth driven by user feedback.
Recently, the Team has developed and released EverVIEW Lite, an online web mapping framework based on the core features available in the desktop viewer.
WARC's Advanced Applications Team is responsible for data management and application development to support the biological monitoring components of coastal restoration projects in the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority portfolio.
This link takes you to the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center remotely sensed land data archive, which contains millions of satellite images, as well as aerial photos, digitized maps, elevation and land cover products, and much more. Most are easily downloadable via the internet.
WARC's Advanced Applications Team is responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of numerous custom web applications supporting the restoration efforts led by the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council and their staff including their flagship content management system, a bulk email system, story maps and several custom tabular and geospatial data driven environments.
ITIS is the authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, fungi, and microbes of North America and the world. We are a partnership of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican agencies (ITIS-North America); other organizations; and taxonomic specialists. ITIS data is used in thousands of databases in industry, academia and government.
This portal contains U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) video and photography of the seafloor off of coastal California and Massachusetts, and aerial imagery of the coastline along segments of the Gulf of Mexico and mid-Atlantic coasts. These data were collected as part of several USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program Seafloor Mapping projects and Hurricane and Extreme Storm research.
BISON: (http://bison.usgs.ornl.gov) A web-based map viewer allowing users to search, view and download species occurrence data from BISON. BISON APIs: (http://bison.usgs.ornl.gov/#api) REST, WMS, and solr services enabling direct use of species occurrence data from custom external applications. BISON Examples : (http://bison.usgs.ornl.gov/#examples) Examples of BISON API use via web services.
This web page provides access to current and historic groundwater-level data collected by monitoring partners, as well as water-level graphs and maps showing net water-level changes between any two time periods. Data for individual wells are filtered to remove measurements taken during active pumping because they do not accurately represent conditions in the aquifer.
