- It can be compared to assessment data like the Puget Sound Characterization Project, PSNERP, or Floodplains by Design efforts, and describe relative development rate or risk.
- It will integrate new housing unit point data, required by the washington state assessors office, to compare new unit creation to zoning.
- It was funded by the National Estuary Program, and this phase of work will wind down with a data release in October 2017.
