Data

Remote sensing, research, forest inventory and other types of data are available to researchers and the general public. For example, MNR maintains a number of long-term databases as part of the Riparian and Aquatic Habitat Status and Trend Monitoring Project (2013 to present). These databases include data on stream channel morphology, stream temperature, hydrology, stream shading, and riparian trees. Submit your data request to the Project Manager or OESF Research and Oversight Manager (Teodora Minkova).
DNR GIS data is available here (requires the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, or Microsoft Edge), and DNR maps and survey data are available at this link.
