Geospatial recreational trails data for the United States
Track: National Mapping
Authors: Robert Pierce, David Duran
Recreational trails information occurs in many forms distributed across the landscape among multiple owners, managers, and sites with no common enterprise architecture to support efficient government-wide mapping and management of these resources. The goal is to explore ways to assimilate existing recreational trail information with centerlines, minimal attribution, and a unique trails identification system leading to the establishment of an authoritative geospatial National Trails Database.
