The Puget Sound Mapping Project is unique. Interactive maps allow local governments and other users to view current and expected development patterns in the Puget Sound region and help determine how they might impact the region’s environmental health.The tool can be used by local governments, special purpose districts, state and federal agencies, legislative staff, consultants and the public to:

  • Assess growth patterns and trends over time;
  • Help support decisions related to development projects, urban growth boundaries, and the need for environmental protection measures;
  • Allow integration with Puget Sound Basin watershed characterization data and other data resources;
  • Help support and strategically target compensatory mitigation actions.
