Maps & Data
CERP GIS Project
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has created an easy-to-use interactive map
application to view CERP project information.

The Everglades Depth Estimation Network
(EDEN) (external link)
Eden is an integrated network of real-time water-level monitoring, ground-elevation
modeling, and water-surface modeling that provides scientists and managers with
current (1999-present), on-line water-depth information for the entire freshwater
portion of the Greater Everglades. The target users are biologists and ecologists
examining trophic level responses to hydrodynamic changes in the Everglades.
Environmental and Economic Equity (EEE) Baseline Data Acquisition and Analysis
Maps. These maps are designed to be a tool to help begin to disseminate demographic,
economic, water use, conservation and land use data.
South Florida Information
SOFIA provides scientific information access in support of research, decision-making
and resource management for the South Florida ecosystem restoration effort.
System Wide Modeling
System-wide model results will be used by the RECOVER teams
to evaluate the system-wide performance of particular CERP projects. Project
Development Teams can also review system-wide model results of their plan alternatives.
USACE Survey Monument Archival and Retrieval Tool (U-SMART)
Information and locations of all survey monuments in the area can be found on U-SMART an online survey monument archival and retrieval tool.

Given the complexities associated with environmental restoration, the keys to success are sound scientific practices.
Across Trophic Level System Simulation (ATLSS) is a
scientific modeling tool that assists with predicting the complex biological
responses to changes made to the water regime.
The Committee on Restoration of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem (CROGEE)
was developed by the National Academy of Sciences and is designed to provide
scientific guidance to multiple agencies to assist with the restoration of the
Recent Publications by CROGEE/NRC:
Water Storage in the Everglades:Risks and Opportunities (2005)
Monitoring and Assessment for the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (2003)
Bay Watershed Management Website
Provides decision makers and water managers with objective, high quality advice
on scientific and engineering issues pertaining to understanding, preserving
and restoring the fauna and flora of the Everglades/Florida Bay ecosystem.
RECOVER(REstoration COordination & VERification
is an arm of the Comprehensive Plan (CERP) responsible for linking science and
the tools of science to a set of system-wide planning, evaluation and assessment
South Florida Information
South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) is an interdisciplinary service that
provides coherent information access in support of research, decision making,
and resource management for the South Florida ecosystem restoration effort. SOFIA
offers a suite of information systems and tools enabling the selection, organization,
documentation, dissemination and storage of data and other information products.
