NOAA's C-CAP Land Cover Atlas is an online, interactive map that displays regional land cover and land cover change for coastlines in the United States, including those along the Great Lakes. The map summarizes general change trends (such as forest losses or new development), highlights specific changes of interest (salt marsh losses to open water, or evergreen forest losses to development, for instance), and provides tables, maps, and reports to enhance communication and decision-making.
Sharing information resources on coastal wetlands helps foster collaborative and more strategic conservation efforts.
There are many existing partnerships, plans, reports, training materials, decision tools and other valuable information resources that can help inform strategic decision making to protect and restore Great Lakes coastal wetlands. On this page we bring these information resources together with brief descriptions and direct links to help you quickly find those resources that meet your individual needs.
