Summary
The Coastal Habitat Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program (CHIMMP) was funded by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida’s Wildlife Legacy Initiative, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s funding support of Florida’s State Wildlife Grants Program. The goals of CHIMMP included bringing together representatives from mapping and monitoring programs across the State in order to increase communication, minimize duplicate efforts and identify data gaps. Data products include a statewide technical report (https://myfwc.com/research/habitat/coastal-wetlands/projects/chimmp/ ), which includes graphs of regional changes in coastal wetland area based on Water Management District Land Use/Land Cover maps; pilot mapping studies; and monitoring projects (selected data presented here).
Parameters
Acreage (in CHIMMP report), Monitoring parameters: species, basal percent cover, tree height, tree diameter at breast height, elevation
Notes
Statewide report, monitoring data from NE FL. Method: Long-term monitoring data collected following the methodology of the Critical Coastal Habitat Assessment (CCHA): Radabaugh KR, Moyer RP, Raulerson GE, Sherwood ET (2017) Critical Coastal Habitat Assessment Training Manual: A Guide for Long-Term Monitoring of Coastal Wetland Habitats. Tampa Bay Estuary Program, St. Petersburg, FL. TBEP Technical Report #06-17. 29 pp., available from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cBFAyVheC-z4RyCnRImeAoO_fPibohN-/view , same protocol as ID_906
Application
Identify data gaps, needs, and priorities. Create a statewide report on the status, trends, and mapping and monitoring information available for mangroves and salt marshes in Florida.

Method
The CHIMMP report provides a summary of status and mapping and monitoring data and is not a primary data source. CHIMMP report methodology: literature review, gap analysis and data summary. Long-term monitoring is a primary data source and follows Critical Coastal Habitat Assessment methodology
