Download National Datasets

Data collected and managed by Forest Service programs is available in a map service and two downloadable file formats – in a shape file and an ESRI file geodatabase. Metadata is available that describes the content, source, and currency of the data. You can filter the list by the topic categories in the menu at the left to help you find information you are interested in. You can view the feature classes in a single dataset by clicking on the name of the parent dataset at the bottom of the abstract.

FSTopo Airfield Line

S_USA.FSTopo_Airfield_LN

ESRI geodatabase  (551KB)
shape file  (667KB)

Themes: airfield, transportation, topographic, quadrangle, fstopo, cartographic

Date of last refresh: May 8, 2017

FSTopo_Airfield_LN portrays Heliports, Seaplane Bases, Landing Strips, Airport Outlines, etc. This feature class was derived from the Cartographic Feature File (CFF).Within the FSTopo database, features are represented as lines, points, or polygons, with descriptive subtype attribute codes attached to describe the cartographic symbology characteristics of features. Annotation features are represented as stand-alone map text collected relative to the scale of the topographic quadrangle. The FSTopo database was originally populated with Cartographic Feature File (CFF) data which was digitized from either the Primary Base Series (PBS) quadrangles or U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic map series quadrangles. Over time, the legacy CFF data is being replaced (at least partially) with data from nationally standardized sources. Data completeness reflects the content of the original source graphic, digital correction guide information, stereoscopic source, monoscopic source, supplemented with cadastral source information. Forests and Quadrangles may have undergone revision at varying dates. The update revision uses a variety of sources, including Digital Orthophoto Quad (DOQ) imagery, NAIP imagery, cadastral information, other vector data sources, and field-prepared correction guides in hardcopy or digital format.

Purpose:
The FSTopo cartographic database supports a web application that enables the creation and downloading of 1:24,000-scale, 7.5-minute topographic PDF maps for the conterminous United States and Puerto Rico, and 15 minute x 20-22.5 minute, 1:63,360-scale maps over Alaska. The FSTopo Area of Interest covers the USFS National Forests and Grasslands. The cartographic database is updated accordingly as new data sources are added by means of data revision activities, which are coordinated between the National Forest/Grassland units and the USFS Geospatial Service and Technology Center (GSTC).

FSTopo_Drainage_LN portrays features associated with water lines such as Rivers, Streams, Shorelines, Canals, Dams, etc. This feature class was derived from the Cartographic Feature File (CFF).Within the FSTopo database, features are represented as lines, points, or polygons, with descriptive subtype attribute codes attached to describe the cartographic symbology characteristics of features. Annotation features are represented as stand-alone map text collected relative to the scale of the topographic quadrangle. The FSTopo database was originally populated with Cartographic Feature File (CFF) data which was digitized from either the Primary Base Series (PBS) quadrangles or U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic map series quadrangles. Over time, the legacy CFF data is being replaced (at least partially) with data from nationally standardized sources. Data completeness reflects the content of the original source graphic, digital correction guide information, stereoscopic source, monoscopic source, supplemented with cadastral source information. Forests and Quadrangles may have undergone revision at varying dates. The update revision uses a variety of sources, including Digital Orthophoto Quad (DOQ) imagery, NAIP imagery, cadastral information, other vector data sources, and field-prepared correction guides in hardcopy or digital format.

The FSTopo cartographic database supports a web application that enables the creation and downloading of 1:24,000-scale, 7.5-minute topographic PDF maps for the conterminous United States and Puerto Rico, and 15 minute x 20-22.5 minute, 1:63,360-scale maps over Alaska. The FSTopo Area of Interest covers the USFS National Forests and Grasslands. The cartographic database is updated accordingly as new data sources are added by means of data revision activities, which are coordinated between the National Forest/Grassland units and the USFS Geospatial Service and Technology Center (GSTC).
