EnviroAtlas 15m Riparian Buffer Forest Cover Web Service

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

This EnviroAtlas web service supports research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas). This EnviroAtlas dataset describes the percentage of a 15-m riparian buffer that is forested. There is a potential for decreased water quality in areas where the riparian buffer is less forested. The displayed line represents the center of the analyzed riparian buffer. The water bodies analyzed include hydrologically connected streams, rivers, connectors, reservoirs, lakes/ponds, ice masses, washes, locks, and rapids within the EnviroAtlas community area. For specific information about methods used to develop data for each community, consult their individual metadata records: Austin, TX (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B5F576D51-A856-4495-AB35-BDC40974333C%7D); Cleveland, OH (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B94b46171-da09-4dd7-a831-b3ec9b9468ee%7D); Des Moines, IA (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B6867E66E-3395-44B5-91B0-7C09845BF069%7D); Durham, NC (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B6201C7D5-C28D-4065-A74C-E9047C4A20FC%7D); Fresno, CA (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B5CE0686B-A793-49F1-8E32-1409F96BDD42%7D); Green Bay, WI (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B5CC680BB-A78C-4381-8463-63E1FC3F98F5%7D); Memphis, TN (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B86CB334C-C74F-4B42-BE2F-28BBEDB764CE%7D); Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B3dd12d45-b77b-44de-bbe9-101e0b44acd7%7D); Milwaukee, WI (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B6D35F1D5-7301-494C-BFE2-6A1446810ADC%7D); New Bedford, MA (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7BB299B0C2-7759-4470-86C8-79F5001F6FF2%7D); New York, NY (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B10FA39C0-792E-4585-AF1E-B01D9A8F5BBA%7D); Phoenix, AZ (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B2A001B49-9A58-437D-952C-9F83E49DA557%7D); Pittsburgh, PA (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B9CF44800-A341-4256-98B0-A39AE5964047%7D); Portland, ME (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B07C2370D-FA8D-49F3-B715-7885B6E68456%7D); Paterson, NJ (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B0C420C3C-D0CF-4FDF-A058-D58A9689C367%7D); Portland, OR (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B4F8E223D-F86F-4370-B885-2182A67C1531%7D); Tampa, FL (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B432B30DD-DA4D-44BD-81C6-13BBD9FC3661%7D); and Woodbine, IA (https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7B7336D0A4-C8A4-4EF5-B3CD-EC94226E8B2E%7D).
