Atlas

Coastal Bay Atlas

The Bay Atlas zooms in from the regional level Coastal Atlas, showing finer details within the Galveston Bay and the surrounding counties of Chambers, Galveston, and Harris. New datasets offered in this map set include Digital elevation models, Land Change, Land Cover, Impervious Surface, and Population Density.

Coastal Texas Atlas

The Coastal Atlas is a detailed and comprehensive web-based program providing information for anyone wanting to know more about the Texas coast. Presently, the coastal atlas is the most comprehensive online, interactive database ever compiled about the Texas coast. Serving as a central access point for all geographic data related to twenty-nine coastal counties in Texas, the Atlas offers comprehensive information about every area of the Texas coast down not only to the city block, but also to an individual house or lot on that block.

Status and Trends

The Status and Trends is a collection of spatial and temporal indicators including water quality, oil spills, metals, organics, birds, and fisheries catch per unit effort. This data is obtained from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, General Land Office, and Audubon Texas, with the funding for this project provided by the Galveston Bay Estuary Program. The spatial extent of this atlas is the Galveston Bay Estuary as defined by the National Estuary Program.
