Service Description: A major objective of the Connecticut wetlands inventory was to predict wetland functions statewide so an hydrogeomorphic-type characteristics were added to the wetlands database to create a NWI+ database. These properties include what are now called “LLWW descriptors” (LLWW represents the first letter of each feature: landscape position, landform, water flow path, and waterbody type). This information when combined with the basic wetland features from the Cowardin et al. classification (system, class, subclass, water regime, and special modifiers) greatly expands the functionality of the Connecticut wetlands database. By reviewing the literature and working with wetland specialists across the Region and beyond, a set of correlations linking the attributes in the NWI+ database to numerous wetland functions have been established (Tiner 2003, 2011b). An overview of this process and applications can be found in “NWIPlus: Geospatial Data for Watershed-level Functional Assessment” (Tiner 2010).
