Data and Apps

Bringing information to bear in the conservation of Idaho's native fish, wildlife, plants and natural resources.

The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Information System (IFWIS) is a small team of programmers, biologists, cartographers and data managers in 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 work to build bridges between disparate studies and initiatives across agencies by developing common frameworks in geography, taxonomy and biology.

Our goal is to construct a knowledge system that enables:
  • collection at the source
  • simplified management
  • collaboration
  • data sharing
  • better decisions
