Describes I-map at UW-Arboretum website.

 What is an I-Map? It is an on-line map that is interactive and allows access to data regarding a place in addition to standard topographical map data. Recently the UW-Arboretum has introduced an I-Map of the 1260 acre research facility. The map is designed for two very different types of user. The first is the researcher that needs access to data on soil type by location, fauna and other data used to support research activities. The second and more common user are those who use the Arboretum for outdoor activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing, birding, nature walks and other activities. 

To become more familiar with the UW-Arboretum there is a “Learn” tab where users can select from a number of base maps including: ecological communities, terrain or aerial views. Information can then be added to the base map such as effigy mounds, trail map, wetland areas or current restoration projects. You can also retrieve historical information on the Lost City and the Civilian Conservation Corp cam, birding hot spots, and an inventory of trees.

There is also a video tutorial to learn how to navigate the I-Map and learn what data is available to the user.   The map remains under development and if users encounter problems or a sluggish response the Arboretum technical staff should be contacted.

 One useful tool for outdoor enthusiasts is the ability to calculate trail distances for routes used in the Arboretum. There is also a Your Turn tab that allows you to post your own photos of the Arboretum and post short comments.

The I-Map can be found at
