The Riverscape Analysis Project (RAP) is a web-based GIS Decision Support System (DSS) with the purpose of offering flexible, user-friendly and scientifically robust datasets, tools and educational resources to aid in the decision-making process for salmonid conservation across North Pacific Rim (NPR) Rivers under a changing climate. Further, the RAP DSS provides critical GIS and modeling tools to extract and download remote sensing data, habitat classification and suitability rankings, (coming soon!) climate change vulnerability assessments, riverscape genetic analyses, and demogenetic monitoring in salmonids. The RAP DSS was originally based upon a robust classification (typology) of rivers and river habitats which is aimed at mapping habitat quality and abundance, as well as conserving the existing potential production of salmon and the rivers that they spawn and rear in. It also includes a growing database of empirically measured abundance and genetic diversity metrics, allowing for advanced planning, research and decisions-making in salmonid conservation.
