The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Program assists all levels of the National Park Service by providing the expertise needed to use GIS in support of research, planning and operational decision-making, and by coordinating geospatial asset use and management throughout the NPS. To effectively manage widely distributed resources, the program is organized around national offices, regions, and parks, all of which collaborate to provide leadership and technical support to the NPS GIS community.

The GIS Program helps support more informed planning and decision-making as well as enhances a broad public understanding of parks and programs through data and tools for mapping, visualization, and analysis.
