Geospatial Data

Thank you for visiting the Prescott National Forest's GIS web page.

Geographic Information Systems or GIS are computer systems, software and data used to analyze and display spatial or locational data about surface features. One of the strengths of GIS is the capability to overlay or compare multiple feature layers. A user can then analyze the relationship between the layers.

Data, reports and maps produced through GIS are used by managers and resource specialists to make decisions about land management activities on The National Forests. The Prescott National Forest maintains and utilizes GIS data for various features on the ground.
