University of ToledoThe Great Lakes Maritime Research Information Clearinghouse was developed in 2006 to provide decision-makers with access to accurate, current, and comprehensive data on the value of the Great Lake Maritime Transportation System (GL MTS).
U.S. Army Corps of EngineersAs part of the Great Lakes Coastal Flood Study, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers took oblique photography of the entire coast of the Great Lakes in order to better determine conditions on the ground when producing updated coastal flood maps.
Superior Watershed PartnershipThe Great Lakes Shoreviewer is an interactive map with links to high quality oblique images of Lake Superior, Michigan, and Huron's shorelines. These photos are categorized by county and lake, and also have specific coordinate associated with each image so they can easily be located.

The Precipitation Frequency Data Server (PFDS) is a point-and-click interface developed to deliver NOAA Atlas 14 precipitation frequency estimates and associated information. Upon clicking a state on the map above or selecting a state name from the drop-down menu, an interactive map of that state will be displayed. From there, a user can identify a location for which precipitation frequency estimates are needed.
This publication is intended as a convenient summary of empirical relationships, working guides, and maps, useful in practical problems requiring rainfall frequency data. It is an outgrowth of several previous Weather Bureau publications on this subject prepared under the direction of the author and contains an expansion and generalization of the ideas and results in earlier papers.
Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute, University of South CarolinaThe Social Vulnerability Index (SoVI) measures the social vulnerability of U.S. counties to environmental hazards. The index is a comparative metric that facilitates the examination of the differences in social vulnerability among counties. SoVI is a valuable tool for policy makers and practitioners.
The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, Association of State Floodplain ManagersThe Shoreline Inventory & Oblique Photo Viewer allows users to view oblique images from the 1970s and late 2000s side-by-side, allowing them to visualize coastal change. In addition, bluffs have been analyzed and classified as stable, moderately stable, moderately unstable, or failing.
