Building on this success, the IJC is now focusing its effort on the development of a SPARROW model that will cover the Rainy-Lake of the Woods and Great Lakes basins supported by IWI funding. USGS has recently uploaded a mapper for the Great Lakes that focuses on sub-sub-watersheds on the U.S. side.
