Learn About the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's Geographic Information System

Come learn about the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's geographic information system (GIS) approach to mapping endangered and threatened wildlife habitat throughout New Jersey.

The Landscape Project is used in many planning efforts and is referenced in a number of state regulations. It is also widely used in local environmental resource inventories throughout the state.

An upcoming Landscape Project training and information session will be hosted by Mercer County Community College at the James Kerney Campus in Trenton, NJ on Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Participants will learn how the Landscape Project was developed and have an opportunity to use GIS "hands-on" to access habitat maps for threatened and endangered wildlife species. Seating is limited so please register as soon as possible.

To register, please e-mail patrick.woerner@dep.state.nj.us
