Geographic Information System (GIS) Data

Welcome to the Habitat Institute’s Geographic Information System (GIS) Data.

This section was developed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data used in Wildlife-Habitat accounting. GIS Data is a key piece in ecological habitat assessments. The Habitat Institute uses IBIS, which holds Wildlife-Habitat and ancillary GIS data as well as subbasin planning data.

The Habitat Institute’s policies and procedures have changed regarding GIS data access. Please inquire for GIS data admittance. Thank you.
