Easy access to reliable data is a primary objective of any environmental information management system. Providing high quality, scientific information allows for the formulation of technically sound policies and the ability to address specific management questions. Tools can assist with the flow of information through the various data management steps of data collection, uploading, and review, and facilitate the retrieval, exchange, and visualization of results. This paper highlights tool development from two projects in the San Francisco Estuary. Tools were developed for uploading field data and for downloading results and dynamically mapping concentrations from an online user-defined query tool. By leveraging the functionality of Google Earth, mercury concentrations could be displayed at specific sample sites while also providing a valuable aerial perspective for evaluating the results. These visualization tools are powerful means for conveying information in meaningful ways to environmental managers and scientists responsible for managing the Estuary's resources.
