If you have an interest in natural resource policy and management, you'll want to spend some quality time on the Oregon Explorer's Natural Resource Digital Library website. The purpose of the Explorer is "to use the power of today's cutting edge information technology to create a state-of-the-art-web accessible natural resources digital library." Their project team has accomplished this by creating a variety of "explorer" tools that allow concerned parties to learn about land use patterns in the state, along with providing interactive and customizable maps of natural hazards, wetlands, and wildlife. Along with these features, the site also includes sections such as "Maps", "Charts and Tables", "Data Collections", and "Photos and Videos". Visitors can get a handle of the resources here by taking a tour through the "Featured Tools" near the bottom of the homepage and the "What's New" area. The site is rounded out with a glossary and a place for users to submit queries.
