Geographic Information Systems Datasets

Introduction

"To provide support for local jurisdictions and developers in their efforts to work with the U.S. military to complete Joint Land Use Studies and other development efforts on / around DoD lands, the following webpage provides links to GIS (Geographic Information Systems) datasets and online resources from which to download useful, planning-based geospatial data for further analysis."

What is GIS?

"A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends." - Esri

Geospatial Data Format

An Esri Shapefile is made up of six (6) files and can be viewed in Esri ArcGIS Desktop mapping software or the free ArcGIS Explorer Desktop mapping software (also available as a free App for iOS or Android platforms). For more information about ArcGIS, go to: http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-desktop or http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer.
