The Sonoran Desert Research Station was started at the University of Arizona (UA) in 1973. The station collaborates with the Advanced Resources Technology (ART) Group in the School of Natural Resources (SNR) to gather, manage, and provide natural resource data to land managers throughout the desert region. The station maintains a node on a number of national geographic information system data serving systems such as the Federal Geographic Data Committee’s Geographic Data Clearinghouse.
