Pennsylvania Game Commission gets new GIS maps

GeoDecisions recently partnered with the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) in US to provide detailed maps of public hunting areas. Using GIS GeoDecisions has generated new countywide and regional maps for the PGC that display all of the property available for hunting and trapping throughout the state. These multi-layer maps show hunting areas by county and include locations of state game lands; farm game, forest game and safety zone cooperator enrolled lands; cooperative state and federal lands managed by the PGC; and state forest and park lands open to hunting. The next phase of the project will involve converting the PGC’s hard copy maps into a digital format. This conversion will provide the PGC with more accurate data and ensure the preservation of maps and documents in the event of a fire, flood, or disaster.
