Great Lakes including Lake Superior mapping is available via the following links:
A mapping tool showing Thunder Bay Harbour environmental issues, remediation (cleanup) projects and historical imagery.
Superior Streams mapping project provides information about stream and watershed characteristics including: riverbed material, bank stability, water temperature, riparian vegetation and shade, local land use and land cover, in-stream vegetation, fish habitat and cover, and barriers to fish movement. Includes 50 streams from the Pigeon River border crossing to Marathon, Ontario.
Landview allows creation of customized maps based upon selection of Minnesota Department of Natural Resources data layers. Choose from public lands, water bodies, roads, aerial photos, and more.
An online mapping system displaying environmental stressors with the objective of assisting in management decisions.
This is a map system showing the intensity of recreactional activity including sport fishing, recreational boating, birding, beach use and park visits for all five Great Lakes. Both the United States and Canada are included. Recreational sites were compared to the research team’s previously published “threat maps,” which show the location of 34 Great Lakes environmental stressors. Taken together, the maps show intensity of recreational use as well as environmental stress and provide an unprecedented scientific foundation upon which to sustainably manage the Great Lakes.
