The following represent GIS tools provided by WRP partners during the 2016-2017 WRP Regional Assessment effort to gather inputs from all WRP partners on their current priorities, emerging issues, and available resources. This list is not exhaustive of WRP GIS-related partner tools but rather represents some of what is available. The WRP will continue to add to these resources as additional ones are identified.
