This interface provides access to several types of data related to the Chesapeake Bay. Bay Program databases can be queried based upon user-defined inputs such as geographic region and date range. Each query results in a downloadable, tab- or comma-delimited text file that can be imported to any program (e.g., SAS, Excel, Access) for further analysis. Comments regarding the interface are encouraged. Questions in reference to the data should be addressed to the contact provided on subsequent pages.
The Chesapeake Bay Program is founded on the commitment of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, the Federal Government and the Chesapeake Bay Commission to work in partnership to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay system. In the years since the Chesapeake Bay Agreement of 1983 , the Program has expanded its scope of partnerships to include greater participation by citizens, local governments, businesses and others. The Program has also expanded its geographic and technical scope by encompassing more activities in the watershed, the airshed and even the influence of the ocean in recognition of the extensive ecosystem connections that affect the Bay and its management.
