TEC now maintains several Web-based projects. The Texas Environmental Profiles provides access to dozens of maps and current and historical facts, figures, and legislative information on the current condition of Texas water, land, and air.

These are key components of the Wild Connections conservation plan, and they become part of the regional and continental wildlands network promoted by the Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project and the Wildlands Project. UASPP is affiliated with the Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project which coordinates mapping efforts across the region.
