What we do

The NWI Program is responsible for producing wetland maps and data on the status and recent trends in U.S. wetlands. We work with federal, state, and, in some cases, local agencies in an effort to provide the American public with information on wetlands that can be used to help guide land-use decisions that consider wetland conservation.

Our wetlands data are provided in two basic forms:

  • online maps that provide information on the location, size, and type of wetlands for specific areas
  • technical and nontechnical reports

While the reports focus on summarizing the results of our mapping, we do, on occasion, produce special reports on other topics including: 1) recent and historic wetland trends, 2) landscape-level wetland functional assessments, and 3) potential restoration sites.
