Minnesota Restorable Wetland Index

The Minnesota Restorable Wetland Index (RWI) was developed by the Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR). The RWI was developed statewide on a 3m grid by applying machine learning models to predict location of existing and restorable wetlands based on hydrological, geomorphological, and geological variables. Post-processing was done to remove existing wetlands and smooth the results. This data layer replaces the original NRRI RWI that was developed statewide on a 30m grid using a different methodology.
