Interactive Maps

Web Mapping Services are online mapping tools designed to allow users to view spatially referenced data, create customized queries, design printable maps, and download GIS layers for use within a desktop GIS. FWRI's Web-based GIS technologies allow efficient viewing and sharing of GIS data via the Internet in support of efforts to conserve and manage habitats important to fish and wildlife. Users can develop custom queries, view Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) compliant metadata, create printable maps, and download data directly through the Web-based interface.

Project-Specific GIS Sites

This section contains descriptions and links to interactive mapping Web sites. Many of these are project specific. Some, like the Marine Resources GIS site, provide a broad range of data layers and offer data download capability. Others, like the FWC Wading Bird Locator site, have a narrow focus providing species-specific information.

FWC Facts:
Pyrodinium bahamense, an HAB organism that blooms each summer in Tampa Bay and Indian River Lagoon, chemically lights up to glow in the dark. This is called bioluminescence.
