A comprehensive, shared scientific database
"The Mojave Desert Ecosystem Program is a significant effort to compile
and integrate a very large body of spatial and temporal information
covering approximately 80,000 square miles. It is the first of its
kind to organize a detailed, environmentally oriented, digital geographic
database set over an entire ecoregion. As articulated in the
accomplishments outlined above, MDEP is instrumental in providing
dynamic, sustainable, land management decision-making at the ecosystem
level. Its numerous geospatial databases and partnerships, developed
throughout the implementation of the program, provides land managers
in the region a platform from which to successfully sustain long-term
mission accomplishment in the face of encroachment, funding uncertainties,
and deteriorating natural resources. "
Use geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing,
environmental modeling, and internet mapping to help better
address resource, environmental and socio-economic issues.

FIA - The FIA program is the only entity that conducts comprehensive forest
resource inventories on both public
and private lands in the
FIA provides continuous evaluation and analyses of the resources on a
national,statewide and regional scale and special study areas as well as
contributing valuable support to national analyses, using national standards.
FIA has developed the only nationwide forest resource data, based on
permanent sample plots in every
delivery system is being used to provide access to FIA information, and
allowing flexible user-specified tables to be generated over an Internet site
