The Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Framework (GLAHF) contains two primary data resources: an aquatic habitat spatial framework and a database. GLAHF's spatial framework allows for the standardization of geospatial data to a hierarchically nested set of grid cells to be used as building blocks for informing management decisions and developing other spatial products such as aquatic habitat classification, nearshore assessment, and decisions support tools. The GLAHF spatial framework is a nested grid system starting with a 9km grid covering the entire Great Lakes Basin.
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.
