GIS and GPS Downloadable Data

Wilderness shapefiles are for use by those with GIS mapping software and expertise using and manipulating geographic data. Shapefiles of the entire wilderness system, as well as individual areas, are available for download below. A public wilderness feature service and map service can be added to ArcGIS online or other online maps.

Feature level metadata is available for boundaries that have been updated since 7/22/2009. This Excel spreadsheet provides the date of last update and contact information for the source from which the data was obtained. Boundaries are generally reobtained from the managing agencies and updated within this dataset annually.
