As a mission critical component of the Service, the National Wetlands Inventory has refined its program focus and direction to supply Agency resource managers and its partners with digital map information, technically advanced tools, assessment products, and information dissemination procedures that will provide solutions to myriad resource management issues. This Strategy provides the needed framework to accomplish this challenge. The Service will begin to implement this change in program direction in FY 2002.
