This is a research project and website design, development and implementation project with the goal of designing a WaterAtlas.org website for the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program with spatial coverage of the CHNEP Study area, including the counties of Polk, Charlotte, Lee, Sarasota, Manatee, Hardee and Desota. Research includes data informatics research and spatial design in integration component development.
This is the web portal that provides access to all of the Water Atlas websites. Each Water Atlas is a website that helps communities to make informed decisions by providing up-to-date information on our vital water resources.
This interactive web-based atlas is an information gateway for citizens interested in the health of the Charlotte Harbor watershed, which encompasses all or part of seven counties and stretches from coastal Lee County north and east to include part of Polk County. Its geographic coverage includes the study area of the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program, a regional alliance that is part of the US Environmental Protection Agency's National Estuary Program.
