GIS Data

A significant component of our year-one grant effort is to identify, document, and disseminate all the data collected over the years on the biogeochemistry (i.e. all the data we can find) of the Belgrade Lakes Watershed.  Table 1 lists data themes that are relevent to this project.  Table 2 lists specific  data sources.
