These applications are built and maintained by the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Information System, a small team of biologists, data managers, GIS professionals, and programmers working within the Department of Fish and Game.

We work in collaboration with our counterparts at state, federal and tribal agencies, as well as private partners to develop a common infrastructure for compiling, managing, and disseminating data about Idaho's fish, wildlife, plants, and natural resources.

We build bridges between disparate studies and initiatives across agencies by developing common frameworks in geography, taxonomy, and biology.
