Reliability of data
Resources made available through applications are either submitted by general public users for publication consideration or have been added by our data team which conducts asset mapping activities throughout the U.S. See Data Sources to learn more.
In an on-going effort to qualify resource data, we reference a number of public data sources and work to create formal partnerships with a variety of institutions and organizations within the field. Data partners represent leading authorities in the field who collaborate to help us manage specific datasets made available in applications. In some case, this involves directly importing data that the partner has certified. In other cases, this involves having partners review specific resources that are submitted for publication by the general public.
In general, resource pages that have full descriptions and complete contact information reflect resources that has been authored by a data team member. This is a good indication that the resource may be helpful to you in terms of care and support.
