USGS adds US Forest Service Data for Wyoming Topo maps

US: New US Topo maps for Wyoming feature various trails using data provided by the US Forest Service. such as the trails in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. “The USGS has expanded an excellent working relationship with the US Forest Service to include adding their recreational trails to the data being integrated into The National Map and on our US Topo map. The value of adding trails in areas like Bridger-Teton is high because of the number of people using the trails. We are very excited about taking this first step toward incorporating US Forest Service trails information on US Topo maps nationwide,” said Kari Craun, Director of the USGS National Geospatial Technical Operations Center

The US Forest Service has provided boundary and road data for the US Topo map series for the past five years, and is currently working on a national dataset of recreational trails.
