CARAT (Computer-Aided Resource Analysis Tool) is a GIS-based decision support system developed by WyGISC and used by BLM field office managers and resource specialists in NEPA environmental assessment and other resource management decisions. CARAT is based on ArcGIS software, customized specifically for field office use. It utilizes over 50 themes of spatial data to help field office staff assess and document recommendations for permit applications, such as construction of well pads, access roads, and pipelines. In addition, CARAT tracks these project-specific analyses and recommendations for cumulative impact analysis. CARAT is currently in use in the Pinedale Field Office Area, Wyoming since 2000 and the White River Field Office, Colorado since 2004.The Pinedale Field Office Area has contracted with WyGISC for additional functionality to be added to CARAT.
