Tools and Data for Mapping Wetlands

Originally Broadcast on October 28th, 2020, 12:30 - 1:30 pm ET

In this webinar co-hosted with Esri, we will explore how wetland managers and scientists are utilizing and accessing GIS tools and data sets to predict, model, monitor, and delineate wetlands. We will take a look in the Arc Hydro toolbox at the Hydroperiod tool, as well as see how scientists are using the new US Army Corps of Engineers Antecedent Precipitation Tool (APT) to simplify project area rainfall analysis.
