MANAGING SPATIAL DATA FOR WETLANDS IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
The San Francisco Bay Area Bay Area Network (SFAN) hosts and protects a wide array of wetland areas, from the coastal plains of Point Reyes to the arid slopes of Pinnacles National Park. Several different mapping techniques had been used to inventory the network’s wetland areas, and the spatial data had not been organized. The project I present here explains how spatial wetland data for SFAN was organized. Over the course of the project I worked with wetland specialists in three parks to locate, catalog, and compile wetland data into a single geodatabase in ArcGIS.
