NEMO Geospatial Data Collections
Arizona NEMO's mission is to help communities protect their natural resources while still accommodating growth. NEMO is concerned with any issue related to water quality or quantity in the state of Arizona. NEMO stands for Non-point Education for Municipal Officials. The goal of NEMO is to educate land use decision makers to make choices and take actions that will lessen nonpoint source pollution and protect natural resources. This will be accomplished by non-regulatory, research-based education using geospatial information and other advanced technologies for outreach, education, analysis and research. Arizona NEMO helps improve water quality by developing realistic watershed-based plans to achieve water quality standards and protection goals. NEMO recognizes that managment of nonpoint source pollutants is inherently spatial, and supports the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to simulate and predict the impact of land-use change. This collection chronicles many of the documents produced by NEMO for the state of Arizona.
