Recreational Road Inventories at USACE Project Sites
The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) recreation areas receive some of the highest visitation of any areas in the federal system. USACE is a participant in Recreation.gov, an online reservation service for the federal agencies. In both programs, USACE will benefit from up to date, accurate geospatial data. USACE will provide an opportunity for Conservation Interns to develop, verify, and improve spatial data representing recreation and transportation facilities in USACE Water Resource Projects (Project). This information will be used to meet program requirements and to provide better information to visitors regarding recreation on public land.
Spatial data representing the network of publicly accessible roads and parking lots located on USACE fee owned property, and associated condition assessments, which are developed and maintained for use in GIS will assist in advancing USACE technological capabilities. Road network data may also be shared with local Emergency Management Agencies to advance public safety at USACE projects. The effort to verify and inventory recreation facility locations and attributes located on USACE fee owned land and managed by the USACE, will improve the spatial and descriptive accuracy of information used to manage the USACE recreation program and the information presented to current and potential visitors.
