DroughtView

The Hopi Tribe and Navajo Nation have been experiencing widespread and persistent drought conditions for more than a decade. Drought has impacted vegetation and local water resources in ways that threaten agricultural systems and ecosystems that are critical to supporting the Hopi and Navajo people. This system uses basemaps, climate data, fire data, and more to create a tool that addresses the drought information in the Southwest.
