|Project & Reference GIS Data|
Reference data .... for our projects or yours
NV BLM provides a number of reference layers on their site. These layers are in the ESRI shapfile and geodatabase formats designed for use in ArcGIS, a professional GIS software suite. For your convenience, we have converted many of these layers into KMZ files. This allows you to combine these background layers with our Route Inventory and Race Route project data as well as your own data.
Refer to the NV BLM web site for the metadata (information about the data's accuracy, purpose, creation etc.) Data has been converted from NAD83 UTM Zone 11N to WGS84 as per the standard datum and projection used by Google Earth but otherwise, has not been changed from data as posted at the NV BLM website May 2011.
