GIS and the Columbia River Treaty
Track: Understanding GIS Analysis
Authors: Paul Cedfeldt
The Columbia River Treaty Review Program was a multi-year effort undertaken by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Bonneville Power Administration, and others to provide a regional recommendation regarding how to best modernize the Treaty. The USACE geospatial technical team used GIS to help create a system to manage data over the life cycle of the treaty review, assist with and develop tools for facilitating data integration between the technical teams, and facilitate the communication of results.
