CERP Components Map

View or download a map showing the Comprehensive Everglades restoration Plan (CERP) components.

Eden Icon

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.

EEE Map Icon

EEE Maps

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.

SOFIA icon

South Florida Information Access (SOFIA)

SOFIA provides scientific information access in support of research, decision-making and resource management for the South Florida ecosystem restoration effort.

Systemwide Modeling Icon

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.


ATLSS (external link)

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 greater Everglades.
