Sage Grouse Initiative Web Map Application

The SGI Interactive Web Map Application is free and available to the public, presenting cutting-edge geospatial data covering 100 million acres. The Sage Grouse Initiative science team has developed an easy-to-use web application that helps visualize, distribute, and interact with information about the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem.

All of the information can be easily visualized on top of physical maps or the latest satellite imagery. Users can quickly identify and compare areas of concern, evaluating potential restoration or prevention opportunities. Data can be imported from the web application directly into GIS software, which allows the public to customize the information for land management or conservation purposes. Data for individual counties can be downloaded using these simple instructions.
