Maps and GIS Data

Internet Map Services are online mapping tools designed to allow users to view spatially referenced data, create customized queries, design printable maps, and download GIS layers for use within a desktop GIS.  FWRI's Web-based GIS technologies allow efficient viewing and sharing of GIS data via the Internet in support of efforts to conserve and manage habitats important to fish and wildlife.
