Geographic Information System (GIS) maps display characteristics such as carrying capacity and other relationships between the population and the resources available in that region.

GIS maps example


  • Spreadsheets
    Data is collected and converted to a spreadsheet that specifies carrying capacity, long-term projections, or some other characteristic that is
    the subject of the project
  • Maps
    From the spreadsheet, GIS maps are generated to display the sustainability of the regions defined by the project in quantitative and qualitative terms
  • Analysis
    Additional labels and descriptions are added to the map for public display and are used by the Advocacy team for training and lobbying


What is this?

EDA is developing maps that display the carrying capacity of the bioregions of every State Representative and State Senate district in the United States. As an example of what this project will look like, below is an interactive map of the San Francisco Bay Watershed and the various State political districts within it.

This is important for many reasons. Most State legislators have little knowledge of the carrying capacity of food, water and energy, either within their district or their bioregion. This information will educate elected officials about these geographic areas. It will also empower citizens to speak with their lawmakers about bills that favor resource self-sufficiency within their own and nearby political districts.

Bioregional management is becoming crucial now because the populations of most bioregions have no realistic understanding of the carrying capacity of their local resources. That’s why this data has implications beyond each particular political district. It’s useful in creating the basis for discussions between adjoining areas for mutual management of the ecosystem services that support all of its political districts.

How to use the map

  • Click on the button to activate the map

  • Check the box for the San Francisco Bay Watershed

  • Highlight the watershed by hovering over it and click to view carrying capacity data for this watershed

  • Click on the other boxes to see carrying capacity data for the US Congressional districts that are included within or overlap with this watershed
