Rocky Mountain Region (Region 2) Geospatial Data

Our geographic area of responsibility covers Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The datasets presented here are derived from the USFS Land Status Records System (LSRS) and the USFS infrastructure database (Infra), and other current projects of a region wide nature, then processed using ArcMap and Google™ Earth Pro.

NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Prairie Grasslands Region

One of the most threatened ecosystems in North America, native prairie and grasslands contained within the Prairie Grasslands Region are essential habitat for a number of wild game and threatened species, including the lesser prairie chicken and sage grouse. The region also encompasses the Red River Basin of the North and the Ogallala Aquifer—areas that are facing critical conservation needs on working lands from frequent flooding and ponding (in the north) to prolonged drought and aquifer decline (in the Ogallala). This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

Long-Term Agricultural Research (LTAR) network - Meteorological Collection

The LTAR network maintains stations for standard meteorological measurements including, generally, air temperature and humidity, shortwave (solar) irradiance, longwave (thermal) radiation, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation. Many sites also have extensive comparable legacy datasets. The LTAR scientific community decided that these needed…
