Puget Sound Interactive Maps is a site developed by Vertices and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance to greater understand the issues affecting the regions environment. Through scientific data, it is clear that there is population and declining species. The online interactive maps allows users to locate problems and resources in Puget Sound.

It shows all hazardous waste sites, species distribution, waters of concern, impaired waters, water quality assessment areas, wetlands, shellfish harvesting, and the human impact.

The hope is by putting practical information about Puget Sound into an easy-to-access format, people will be more willing to make lifestyle changes to reduce their environmental impact.
