Pamlico-Tar River Foundation http://imrivers.com/ptrf This site maps different locations of interest in addition to all of the water sampling sites. It is used simultaneously as a site for visitors and community, as well as for park services. Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition http://imrivers.com/prwc PRWC uses the site to show all different types of things on the river.

Sassafras River Association http://www.imrivers.com/sassafrasriver/ The Upper Sassafras River site charts the spread of possibly toxic algae that is indigenous to the area. A growing abundance of these algae contributes to the loss of underwater grasses, shoreline and woodland erosion, and the endangerment of animals and even humans. This mapping project keeps record of all monitoring stations and sampling sites used to control the algae.
