Description

The University of Kansas Field Station (KUFS) is dedicated to field-based environmental research and education. KUFS is located within the transition zone (ecotone) between the eastern deciduous forest and tallgrass prairie biomes. Faculty, students, and others use the 3,700 acres of diverse native and managed habitats, experimental systems, support facilities, and longterm databases to undertake an outstanding array of scholarly activities. Environmental stewardship is a strong emphasis as high-quality natural areas are preserved for the future.

This web mapping application was developed for the Kansas University Field Station (KUFS). This application contains administrative, ecological, and hydrological spatial data. An archive of historical aerial photography, beginning in the 1940s, also shows how the area has changed through time. All data within this application can also be downloaded in GIS, Google Earth, and web service formats from the KBS metadata catalog.
