- LTRM Spatial Data Query Tool
The Upper Mississippi River Restoration (UMRR) Program Long Term Resource Monitoring (LTRM) element has collected millions of records of information over 20+ years.
Fisheries, water quality, vegetation, and invertebrates have all been sampled. Geographic locations were collected for all sampling points.
This information has been available in data tables via the data download tools,
but has not been available to scientists, resource managers, and the public via an internet-based mapping and query application.
Spatial data query tools were developed that allow the query, display, mapping, and data extraction of UMRR LTRM element component data using an easy-to-use graphical
