Geographic Information Systems

Because of the size, complexity and number of cooperating partners in the Rouge Project, the need for an effective data management system was evident very early. It was clear that the data being generated must be of known and documented quality and easily accessible for use in any needed analysis and for reporting purposes.

The Rouge Project has established an integrated geographic information system (GIS) and data management system that is structured to support the many and varied technical activities of the project. These systems started as a primary mapping and data storage tool for support of the monitoring programs; the modeling efforts; and nonpoint source control projects. It quickly expanded to include public information and education aspects.

The Rouge Project has developed numerous technical reports and related information on a wide variety of topics including wetlands, watershed management, nonpoint source pollution, illicit discharges, onsite sewage disposal, modeling, monitoring, combined sewer overflows, financial and institutional arrangements and general information about the Project. All of these reports are included in the Rouge Project data management system.

A number of the GIS and data management systems the Rouge Project has developed and utilized are user-friendly and readily transferable for use by others.
