Coastal Update to the National Wetlands Inventory

Rapid Update to the National Wetlands Inventory for Selected Areas of Intertidal Wetlands in the North Atlantic LCC

This project completed a rapid update for wetland mapping in 162 coastal areas (1:24,000 topographic quadrangles in ME, MD, MA, NJ, NY, PA, and VA) that were last updated prior to 2000. The updates, which were incorporated into the National Wetland Inventory, have many applications in conservation analysis and coastal planning, including the Designing Sustainable Landscapes project (also funded by the North Atlantic LCC).
