National Recreation Areas

Last updated on 7/1/2011 12:53:54 PM.

Overview

This data set was developed for use within WFDSS to identify and display National Recreation Areas (NRA) managed by the USDA Forest Service.

Data Input

The NRA data displayed in WFDSS were obtained from the USDA Forest Service Geospatial Service and Technology Center. Minor edits were performed on the data to ensure a consistent format. The attributes of the source data were edited so that the NRA and Agency names were the only two attribute fields in the final version. These edits did not impact the original integrity of the data, and no polygons or attribute associations were changed, removed, or added.

Caution: The data displayed in WFDSS are intended for STRATEGIC USE ONLY. Always verify the positional accuracy of the data with local knowledge.

National Recreation Areas GIS Team Contacts

The WFDSS application is "data rich". It requires data which is spatially oriented and graphically displays information to support wildland fire and other natural resource decisions. Due to the type and number of interagency spatial data sets required in April 2009 an interagency GIS Team was formed to provide data support for WFDSS. This Team is responsible for acquiring, consolidating, and validating their agency spatial and tabular data. In addition this team developed and maintained communications among local, regional, and national agency personnel to improve the collection process and provide explicit guidance on data needs. The members of the WFDSS GIS Team are:
