AppGeo extends its congratulations to the US Geological Survey Gap Analysis Program Team.  Their Species Viewer won a Web-based GIS Application Award at the 2011 Esri User Conference Software Applications Fair.  AppGeo and its partner, GreenInfo Network, worked closely with the USGS GAP Analysis Program Team  to design and develop the mapping interface.   USGS was responsible for the data and the server-side development and hosting.  The species viewer is one of three viewers developed by this same collaborative effort through the Gap Analysis Program for presenting national environmental data.
