Significant Stream / 303 (d) Mapping Project - CSWGCIN staff worked with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) to link ArcGIS data describing ecologically significant streams in Texas with data from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's (TCEQ) 2002 303(d) list of impaired waters to build an interactive mapping system for the 16 water planning regions of Texas.

Marsh Monitoring Database - The Marsh Monitoring Database Mapping Application provides information on species found in various marshes around Houston, TX. Each data point describes the species present and the associated environmental data (salinity, water and air temperature, total dissolved solids, and pH) for that site.

Houston Water Quality - Focusing on the nine counties surrounding the Houston area, this application provides many water related data sets.

Edwards Aquifer Water Quality and Quantity Data Download - Choose from the spatial layer files to download data associated with Edwards water quality, threatened and endangered species critical habitat, and sampling station and gauge locations.

Karst Aquifers Mapping Application - Explore CSWGCIN's Karst Mapping Application, with data layers for Groundwater and Surface Water Quality and Quantity, Critical Habitat for the Karst Threatened and Endangered Species, Precipitation data and more. The mapping application works with the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex.

Coastal Fisheries Mapping Application and Data Download - Provides access to fisheries data from the Louisiana Dept of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. The application allows the user to view each of the bay systems or coastal study areas along the TX and LA coasts and view population trend graphs for selected species that inhabit these areas. Population trends can be compared against several hydrological parameters of interest. Species abundance data can be downloaded in Excel format.

Gulf of Mexico Biodiversity - This interactive mapping application explores the incredibly diverse habitat and biota present in the Gulf, displaying distribution information on benthos, plankton and other marine life groups as well as providing background data on parameters such as dissolved oxygen, temperature, and others.

Wetland and Seagrass Information System - CSWGCIN partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Texas Coastal Program and the Galveston Bay Status and Trends Project to map seagrass restoration projects and water quality monitoring stations in West Galveston Bay and Christmas Bay, Texas.

Sand Dunes - These animations present 1 year of vegetation data gathered between March 2000 and March 2001 at Pirates Beach located on Galveston Island Texas.

Gulf of Mexico Current Weather Conditions - NOAA's rainbow infrared satellite loop of the Gulf of Mexico.

Ecoregions Mapping Application - Provides access to county-by-county distribution of all federally-designated threatened and endangered species within CSWGCIN and SWIN ecoregions. The application also provides access to the geographic distribution of selected invasive species, political boundaries, and baseline environmental data such as average temperature and average precipitation.

Regional Invasive Species Database - Provides information describing over 250 invasive species found in the CSWGCIN region, including introduction pathways, images, species fact sheets, taxonomic information provided by the USDA Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) and bibliographic citations.

Species of Greatest Conservation Need - Learn about species in need of conservation in the Central Southwest and Gulf Coast region, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. Over 2,600 amphibians, birds, fishes, mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants have been identified by State wildlife agencies as species of Greatest Conservation Need (GCN). This interactive application provides resources from multiple authoritative sources including NatureServe and ITIS.

Texas Colonial Waterbird Interactive Mapping Application - View details and trends in the sightings of of waterbirds for various bays & counties along the Texas Coast during recent years.
