Title: Biological Condition in NC Urban Streams Phase III: Development of a Web Application
Author: Paul, Michael; Allen, Diane
Abstract: Using the model of biological potential along urban1 land cover gradients in North Carolina constructed using EPT and biotic index metrics, a web application (ArcGIS StoryMap) was constructed to visualize the results for every urban (>1% impervious cover) watershed in North Carolina. The web application allows any user to identify the potential EPT richness and NCBI score for any watershed constrained by urbanization. This constrained biological potential is provided as both a scaled value (comparable across the state) and ecoregion specific actual predicted score. Watershed managers should be able to use this information to help guide urban stream prioritization, planning, restoration and monitoring and the concept would support construction of a tiered aquatic life use framework. NCDEQ agreed to host the web application as part of the ArcGIS StoryMap service and the plan is to migrate the web application to the state for this purpose.
