Our GIS experts use the Breuner Marsh Restoration and Public Access project as a case study in the article. This project was recently recognized as an outstanding environmental project at 2015 State of the Estuary Conference restored and enhanced 40 acres of tidal and seasonal wetlands, key habitats for native vegetation and wildlife. This new coastal shoreline park included the restoration of historic San Francisco Bay wetlands and constructing public access trails.
