Woods Work: Minnesota Natural Resource Atlas

Screenshots of different data layers available with MN Natural Resource Atlas banner

So you need a mapped digital elevation model with wetland locations and township boundaries, and you need it quickly. You either don't have access to GIS software, or your computer just can't handle large datasets. Where can you find the most up-to-date data? How long will it take to download? You really only need one county - do you have to download the whole state?

The online Minnesota Natural Resource Atlas is an interactive mapping tool paired with a comprehensive database of almost 400 data layers including agriculture, biota, geology, geography, imagery, water, watersheds, infrastructure, administrative boundaries, and more. This tool gives you access to a wide variety of spatial data regardless of your GIS skills or software accessibility. No data downloads or software installations required! 

What to expect: This event is more of a workshop than a webinar. Be ready to engage in discussion, and to actively participate in using the Natural Resource Atlas during this event. By the end of this session you will be able to use the Atlas to view multiple data layers at once, measure, draw, filter and summarize data, print, and share information and maps with others.
