Data Basin

Data Basin is a science-based mapping and analysis platform that supports learning, research, and environmental stewardship. Data Basin was built by scientists and educators at the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) to empower better conservation planning through access to information.

DIEM’s Sensitive Ecosystems and Enduring Features basemap data is posted on Data Basin where its various attributes can be viewed, and filtered or combined with other relevant datasets to produce new views of the Discovery Islands study area. Data Basin is free and provides open access scientifically-grounded datasets in a user-friendly platform that enables people with varying levels of technical expertise to:
• Explore, view, analyze, and share data and maps
• Create and publish custom maps
• Develop analysis tools for community use
• Promote informed participation in conservation and local resource-use decisions.
Although some of DIEM’s  important maps are embedded in this DIEM website, for more and different map views, visit Data Basin to discover many more possibilities!  You will need to sign in. Please contact us if you want more information or help with getting set up in Data Basin.
