Creating Maps for reporting to the Oregon Watershed Restoration Inventory (OWRI)

Spatial information submitted to the Oregon Watershed Restoration Inventory Online (OWRIO) should show all the restoration activities completed as part of the project. Both PDF maps and shapefiles are accepted but shapefiles are the preferred format. Regardless of the format, please ensure each activity reported to OWRIO is clearly identified. For PDF maps, please include a center latitude/longitude coordinate or graticule to enable us to identify the general location of the project.
