Columbia River National Scenic Area GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Data

This page contains metadata, or data about data, for our spatial data sets. The data sets are organized by theme which are shown in the table of contents frame. For example, if you are interested in a data set that has to do with water, just click on the water link in the table of contents. Then click on the name of the data set of interest to view the data dictionary. Each data dictionary will explain geographic information about the data set, who the data steward is, how the data set was built, and other associated information. It will also describe the database tables that are associated with the data set. Please contact the data steward (if noted) if you have questions about the content of the data. Their phone number is included within the data dictionary. The export files are shapefiles or geodatabases that have been compressed with WinZip. Projection is a local Albers projection defined for the area of Oregon and Washington in Region 6 of the Forest Service, NAD 83, units are in meters.

Mt Hood National Forest GIS (Geographic Information Systems) data

Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson. These data sets were made using ESRI© ArcGIS.

Soil Use - Hydric Soils database

The Hydric Soils section presents the most current information about hydric soils. It updates information that was previously published in Hydric Soils of the United States and coordinates it with information that has been published in the Federal Register. It also includes the most recent set of field indicators of hydric soils. The database selection criteria are selected soil properties that are documented in Soil Taxonomy and were designed primarily to generate a list of potentially hydric soils from soil survey databases. Only criteria 1, 3, and 4 can be used in the field to determine hydric soils; however, proof of anaerobic conditions must also be obtained for criteria 1, 3, and 4 either through data or best professional judgment (from Tech Note 1). The primary purpose of these selection criteria is to generate a list of soil map unit components that are likely to meet the hydric soil definition.
