Informed regional planning for habitat open space and recreation in Los Angeles was the byword for a major integrated regional watershed management plan and the plan's chief consultants (RMC) turned to GreenInfo Network to help its team get to the right data and mapping approach.

In 2011 the Greater Los Angeles County Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (GLAC IRWMP) began a new phase of work.  The chief project consultant, RMC Environment and its other project partners turned to GreenInfo Network to analyze the location of critical habitat and linkages, areas with the highest need for open space resources, and wetland locations.  Working with experts in each content areas we collected the best available data, analyzed areas with multiple benefits and created informative maps, along with an online data management system.  Maps were used in working meetings as well as the final IRWMP report. 

The maps and other products were all made available on an internal project website also created by GreenInfo for the project. The website allowed partners to upload/download and review data.

Results: GreenInfo created maps and statistics to education project partners of the habitat, open space, and hydrological features in the region. Final maps were created for inclusion in the final habitat and open space report (HOSP) section of the IRWMP report..
