ESI Atlases by Region

The following is a list of Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) atlases by region (Atlantic Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Pacific, Great Lakes, and U.S. Territories), their publication dates, and atlas numbers. To interpret this table:

  • If no digital (GIS) data are available for an atlas, the Atlas Number is marked with an asterisk.
  • If no ESI data exists, the Publication Date is marked with an asterisk.
  • Some regions have been published in GIS format more than once. These are indicated with earlier versions noted in parentheses. 

The maps and data making up these atlases are downloadable for free from the ESI Downloads page. As new atlases are published, this list will be updated.
