Authoritative Land Status Data

These maps, showing ownership and acreage, are the 'official record' of the acreage of Federal and non-federal lands within the park boundaries. As such this data is intended for use as a tool for GIS analysis. It is in no way intended for engineering or legal purposes.

Biodiversity Across NPS

Explore the biodiversity of our national parks through the observations that visitors and citizen scientists have made on iNaturalist! iNaturalist is a mobile and web-based tool where people can document the plants, animals, and other species they see and the iNaturalist community works together to identify what was observed.

Geodiversity Atlas Map

Geodiversity refers to the full variety of natural geologic (rocks, minerals, sediments, fossils, landforms, and physical processes) and soil resources and processes that occur in the park. The NPS Geodiversity Atlas delivers information in support of education, Geoconservation, and integrated management of living (biotic) and non-living (abiotic) components of the ecosystem.

Sound Mapping

Maps depicting natural sound conditions vs. current, human-impacted conditions. Scientists at the National Park Service use these maps to determine strategies for mitigating the effects of human-induced noise in park lands.

Vegetation Mapping Inventory by Park

The Vegetation Mapping Inventory classifies, describes, and maps vegetation communities in more than 270 national park units across the country. Species and vegetation communities vary from park to park, and park managers, researchers, and ecologists all need and use this information.

Wild and Scenic Rivers

This map provides detailed information and links for individual wild and scenic rivers.
