Ecotrust applied NetMtap and its Digital Landscape to build a chinook habitat intrinsic potential model.
The study objective was to supplement the Alaska Anadromous Catalogue. NetMap
analysis increased the mapped length of anadromous potential streams by 300%!

(Upper) Map of IP model for entire Copper River watershed. All streams are shown; dark lines represent stream segments with IP scores < 0.75, lighter lines represent stream segments with IP scores ≥ 0.75.

NetMap analysis increased the length of potential anadromous streams in the Copper River basin by 300%.
