Data for watershed planning is scattered across the Internet, but Great Lakes communities need a source for relevant information. Tipping Points and Indicators uses data from government agencies and research institutions to deliver this information using maps, charts, gauges, and tools tailored to their watersheds. A custom Story Maps approach helps facilitators guide communities through visioning, information exploration, goal setting and action planning steps to create watershed action plans.
