Deerfield Watershed Stream Crossings Explorer

Project description (English)

The Stream Crossings Explorer (SCE) tool is a data visualization and decision support tool that was developed to assist with locating and prioritizing stream crossings that meet user-defined criteria. SCE conveys information related to aquatic connectivity and ecological aspects of river systems as well as risk of failure of road-stream crossings and associated disruption of emergency services. This tool was designed for state and municipal agencies, local decision-makers, regional planners, conservation organizations, and natural resource managers. It is being piloted in the Deerfield Watershed.
