Take a geospatial approach to outdoor recreation
Providing outdoor recreation on public lands delivers a valuable public service to communities and supports local economies. Land managers can use GIS to communicate recreation opportunities, interpret resources, and engage with the public through community science initiatives. Location-based situational awareness helps staff keep recreational assets well-maintained and safe, and real-time updates support quick responses to changes in their status. With GIS, leaders can measure and visualize the economic impact of outdoor recreation and communicate these benefits to stakeholders.
