Riverscape Analysis Project

Project Summary

The Riverscape Analysis Project (RAP) is a web-based GIS Decision Support System that will assist in salmon conservation across the North Pacific Rim (NPR), based upon a robust classification (typology) of rivers and river habitats which is aimed at conserving the existing potential production of salmon in the context of the ocean domains influencing the rivers and salmon that spawn and rear in them. Funding for this project was provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
