NCRN Vital Signs Data Portal
The National Capital Region Network (NCRN) of the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring (I&M) program has identified 22 indicators of ecological condition within the National Capital Region (NCR), which are commonly called vital signs. Together with the I&M program, IAN developed the NCRN Vital Signs Data Portal to provide access to vital signs data through a graphically oriented interface. Users can query data via vital sign, national park, or ecological system and they can view the data through dynamically generated tables, graphs, maps, and excel downloads as well as gain access to a variety of photos from the parks. The website includes an interactive website tour to give users a detailed overview of the available features.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
