Montana Wetland and Riparian Maps: Where to Find Them and How to Use Them

The Montana Natural Heritage Program (MTNHP) is creating maps of wetlands and riparian areas across Montana following U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory mapping standards. This ongoing effort has resulted in the most comprehensive, up-to-date mapping database for wetlands and riparian areas in Montana. This two-hour training will show you how to easily access the mapping, including viewing the mapping in the MTNHP online Map Viewer, accessing it through an online map service, and downloading the mapping for use in a GIS. It will also present potential uses, as well as limitations of the mapping.

Organizer

Levia Shoutis ERM Inc., for the DEQ MT Wetland Council

Training presenter Levia Shoutis is a certified Professional Wetland Scientist with Environmental Resources Management, (ERM) Inc., based in Livingston, MT. At ERM Levia provides environmental assessment services with a focus on wetland, riparian, and stream habitats, for government and private clients. She routinely uses National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) maps as part of her work, including for GIS-based watershed scale environmental assessment, and as the base layer for more focused project-scale assessments such as wetland delineation and functional assessment, which require field-based groundtruthing of the NWI maps. Levia worked closely with Karen Newlon at the MT Natural Heritage Program Wetland and Riparian Mapping Center, and Lynda Saul at the DEQ/MT Wetland Council to develop the training curriculum.
