Nebraska GIS Data

The Conservation and Survey Division (CSD), and the Center for Advanced Land Management Information Technologies (CALMIT) of the School of Natural Resources (SNR) are actively engaged in assembling statewide digital databases. All GIS databases are made available in both State Plane and UTM map projections. The download files are zipped (.zip) shapefiles. All databases are complete, edge-matched (where warranted) and edited to remove obvious errors. For additional information, contact: Matt Joeckel.

CSD and CALMIT have produced these products using what is thought to be the most reliable information available, or reproduced the material as provided. The detail and precision of the interpretations made are according to accepted professional standards and are dependent upon the techniques, hardware, and/or software utilized.
