Rutgers University’s Center for Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis (CRSSA) has prepared an extensive environmental resource inventory of South Jersey Bayshore that is available on the CRSSA website.
The Inventory consists of a series of geographic information system (GIS) composite and thematic maps of the Bayshore’s
- existing land cover,
- natural communities,
- estuarine zone,
- habitat and biodiversity,
- water resources, and
- historic and cultural resources.
The Inventory will help with land-use planning and developing protection strategies for the region’s exceptional resources. The data are available in several formats that accommodate users with varying skills and needs.
