TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System

TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System is a trail planning and collaboration tool that utilizes geospatial analysis to determine potential routes for new trail connections or to reroute an existing trail.  

Edisto-Santee River Basin

The Edisto-Santee River Basin is a primary focus area for the USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center (SAWSC). Follow through the geonarrative to learn about the basin and SAWSC's top 10 science highlights.

Colorado River Basin drought and the 2023 water year

How wet was 2023 when compared to historical averages? This geonarrative compares precipitation and streamflow amounts observed during the 2023 water year with historical conditions in the Colorado River Basin over the last 30 years. While the 2023 water year was a wet year with above-average precipitation at many locations, it was not uniformly good or record-setting. 

Proportion of time that Pacific Flyway geese are at risk of wind-turbine strikes during transoceanic migrations

This tool shows the proportion of goose locations expected to be in or below a user-specified rotor-swept zone based on expected goose flight altitudes.

Interactive Catchment Explorer (ICE)

Interactive Catchment Explorer (ICE) is a web-based data visualization tool for exploring complex, multivariate environmental datasets and model results. It is designed to help researchers and resource managers identify spatial patterns in hydro-ecological conditions and to prioritize locations for restoration or further study.

EcoSHEDS

EcoSHEDS is a collection of Spatial Hydro-Ecological Data Systems (SHEDS) designed to improve our understanding of stream ecosystems. The goal of EcoSHEDS is to provide a series of user-friendly tools for gaining insight and supporting transparent research, management, and decision-making of hydro-ecological resources.

Flow Photo Explorer

The Flow Photo Explorer is an integrated database, machine learning, and data visualization platform for monitoring streamflow and other hydrologic conditions using timelapse images.

Restoration of the Sulphur Springs Geothermal Area, Valles Caldera National Preserve: Evaluation of surface water quality and geothermal resources before, during, and after restoration

VALL recently received National Park Service (NPS) funding to restore the Sulphur Springs area to pre-mining conditions. Restoration will include removing the old buildings and debris, plugging geothermal wells and grading the mine overburden piles and other disturbed earth to a more natural angle of repose, followed by revegetation,

Water bottling across the U.S.

This Web Tool explores the count of water bottling facilities across the U.S.

Facility types include bottled water facilities, breweries, distilleries, ice facilities, soft drink manufacturing plants, and wineries.

Reported volumes withdrawn (water use) for bottled water facilities are also explored for the small number of facilities for which data are currently available.
