Maps, Tools & Applications

The Sampling Design Tool for ArcGIS randomly selects people, animals, objects, or places in a GIS environment to infer status or change. The tool was developed to create and implement a sampling design based on randomized sampling and test different sampling designs to see which is most precise and least costly.
Project PageView Product

This digital atlas, supporting the proposed Wisconsin – Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary, shows the location of cultural resources, environmental research and monitoring, and human activities. It allows managers, stakeholders, and the general public to see the location of important lake resources and how these resources are distributed relative to one another. The atlas was created to identify data gaps, help prioritize future lakebed surveys, and support a better understanding of the Lake Michigan ecosystem.
