Information on the location, extent and type of wetlands in Colorado allows land managers and state agencies to make informed descisions about wetland resources. Follow the links below to find out more about wetland mapping:
Historically, Colorado has lagged behind most of the country in terms of digital wetland data. In 2007 when CNHP starting wetland mapping, only 15% of the state had digital data available. In the years since CNHP has converted scanned NWI images into digital data for huge areas of the state, and has done updated photo-interpretation in several areas. CNHP has been able to accomplish this by partnering with numerous agencies such as Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), the Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SRLCC) and many local governments.
