Wetlands Map Viewer
Wetlands Map Viewer
This application was created for EGLE's Water Resources Division. The purpose of this application is to provide the public with quick and easy access to wetland spatial data, allowing the users to view, print and export wetland mapping data from their own computer.
The application contains three sections:
- Text Search - search by address, town/range/section, community, latitude and longitude, zip code, street intersection, or watershed.
- Map Search - explore using typical map functionality, such as zoom, pan, re-center, and identify.
- Status and Trends - compare historic wetland data to current information, as well as generate statistical data.
This Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) Wetlands Map Viewer is intended to be used as one tool to assist in identifying wetlands and provides only potential and approximate location of wetlands and wetland conditions. EGLE produced this map from the following data obtained from other agencies or organizations:
- The National Wetland Inventory (NWI) conducted by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service through interpretation of aerial photos and topographic data.
- Land Cover as mapped by the Michigan Resource Inventory System (MIRIS), Michigan Department of Natural Resources, through interpretation of aerial photographs.
- Soils as mapped by the United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
This map is not intended to be used to determine the specific locations and jurisdictional boundaries of wetland areas subject to regulation under Part 303, Wetlands Protection, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended. Only an on-site evaluation performed by EGLE in accordance with Part 303 shall be used for jurisdictional determinations. A permit is required from EGLE to conduct certain activities in wetlands regulated under Part 303.
