    Hey guys, I did this for a final project in my GIS class. Basically, it's assessing Methow River subbasins on a couple important habitat criteria.

    Thanks guys! The full report on the website has a lot of "interesting" data too. Also I'm looking for a GIS job in the region so if any of you know of any opportunities I would love to hear about them. Thanks,

    Very cool. Nice to see fellow GIS people on this site as well. Nicely made maps and analysis. I hope you are able to pass the data onto group that could use it for restoration purposes.

    Very cool deal! Great use of your skills in combination with a passion for the fish. Good read, bookmarked. I also enjoy the well cited sources, stuff to read or re-read in the future!

    I took them as part of a GIS minor at WWU but I know UW has a program as well. Prerequisites are some basic stats classes, map reading classes and geography classes.

    UW has a certificate program as well as a masters program. Green River Community College has an certificate and associates degree available. I am not sure what schools on the east side of the state offer GIS but I assume WSU has some kind of program in place.
