Boise National Forest GIS Data
Selected GIS data that encompass the Boise National Forest is available for download. A link to the FGDC compliant metadata is provided for each dataset.
If you need further assistance with downloading the GIS data, you may call the Boise National Forest at 208-373-4100 and ask for the GIS department.
The following link will allow you to download the entire MVUM for the Boise National Forest as a single file. You will need to save the zip file to a location you can unzip the file. The download file containers 3 items – the Garmin specific installer file, a Garmin specific image file, and a read me document to assist you with the process.
Please note that this is for mapping versions of Garmin GPS receivers only. Read your owner manual for your GPS before proceeding. Some models allow you to install the MVUM file separately so you can chose to select that as your background map. Other models insert the MVUM as an additional map over your existing map(s). Some models allow you to uninstall previous versions of the MVUM, others do not. Again, consult your owner’s manual; additional tips are included in the read me file.
