One of the ways the SFBJV helps partners realize our shared habitat goals is by connecting them with the funding opportunities, science, and resources they need through our habitat project tracking system. Known as the Project Tracker, it includes a data entry portal combined with project information, map viewing, file and document links, and other analytical tools available through the accompanying EcoAtlas.
The system is a comprehensive, user-friendly, habitat project tracking system that enables us to generate acreage and funding summaries to help the partnership track and make progress on regional goals. It’s ultimate value is realized through ongoing user input from project managers and others who are doing the work to restore habitats around the Bay and beyond. Is this you?
The system provides the following benefits:
- Detailed information about habitat projects including funding and acreage information on acquisitions, restorations, and enhancement projects;
- The ability to easily generate project maps and access reports and other files;
- Information that can assist with project planning;
- A forum for networking and information sharing;
- GIS functions that give users the ability to view surrounding land uses, features, and projects, perform various queries, map and measure project sites, and generate .jpg maps
- Interactive, detailed maps of aquatic resources extent
