Abstract : This report addresses the use and applications of geospatial technology in the Biological Resources Division (BRD) of the U.S. Geological Survey. Information on geospatial technology activities and resources at BRD centers and programs is linked to the BRD Geospatial Technology Strategic Plan. Activities listed represent only a sampling of ongoing geospatial applications and infrastructure; new projects are implemented on a regular basis. The use and application of geospatial technology is rapidly expanding Division-wide, as demonstrated by the breadth of applications discussed. This document provides an inventory of geospatial capabilities that currently exist within the centers, field stations, and programs of the BRD.
