EXPLORE CCB’s data portfolio
CCB houses more than 1,000 historic databases. In some cases, these resources represent most of what we know about entire populations or species and represent significant advances in the science of conservation. CCB staff will be making an increasing number of these data sets available to the public and other researchers. Various data sets will be made available in different formats including descriptive metadata, tabular data, or spatial data that may be explored within a Google mapping application.
The 2012 Bald Eagle Nest Database is available on our online mapping server. Please visit the Eagle Nest Locator page for information on the survey.
