The paper describes a Geographic Information System (GIS) to generate an index of relative wetness for an entire watershed. In combining the index with land use coverage, sites for riparian wetland preservation and restoration were identified. The wetness index is from TOPMODEL and is based on topographic features derived from USGS 30-meter Digital Elevation Models. Land cover was derived from a Landsat scene covering a 1500 sq m study area. Airborne, multispectral videography was used to assess accuracy of the Landsat classification. The sites identified for restoration were prioritized based on spatial and proximal consideration.
