The Estuary Data Mapper (EDM) is a free, interactive graphical application under development by the US EPA that allows scientific researchers to quickly and easily view, retrieve, and save data of interest to estuary researchers and decision-makers.
The following screenshot gallery illustrates the types of data that EDM makes available.

Multiple data layers: e.g. gridded deposition, water quality, tidal gauge stations, etc. retrieved with one click and displayed and saved in seconds
One-click dataset selections to show popular scenarios and for convenient export to decision-support tools
