Over the past year, Florida Springs Institute (FSI) staff and volunteers have worked to compile a comprehensive Google Earth map of Florida springs with photos, descriptions, and available water quality data. The Florida Springs Interactive Map will continue to undergo regular updates/revisions and be made available to the public.
