Maps & Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program provides geospatial information to enhance the diverse stewardship, education, and research activities of the Reserve. GIS is a computer-based information system used to digitally represent and analyze the Earth’s features. Every feature on the globe has an address given by latitude and longitude coordinates. Using GIS, other information, such as tree height and soil type, can be linked to each feature as “attributes.”
GIS products and services for the Reserve range from visitor maps, to plotting research sample sites, and extracting and summarizing land cover change data for the Reserve’s watersheds.
