U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Spatial Data Library - Field Stations


***We are currently converting our Refuge Boundaries from coverages to the geodatabase format.***
How will this affect you? Some data will soon be distributed in a shapefile format (.shp). You will need to download the zipped file (.zip) and unzip it at your local machine, keeping all the files in the same directory. During this conversion, some data on this page are available only in ArcInfo export format (e00). They are ready to import into ArcInfo, ArcView or any program that supports the ArcInfo interchange format. Data are in UTM, (zone 17, zone 18 or zone 19) NAD83, meters. The date which appears after the Field Station name reflects the date the associated file was updated. For a detailed description of how the refuge boundary coverages were made, check out the nwrsop.
Please note:
This refuge boundary data is intended for planning purposes or use with other data layers in GIS and mapping applications. It is specifically NOT intended for use as a land survey or representation of land for conveyance or tax purposes. The Realty Survey Program has cadastral information (boundary and acreage data) appropriate for legal purposes. Contact Mike Hayden, Regional Land Surveyor for the Northeast Region, for further information.

To Read the Table Below: Cells contain boundary, DEM, or hillshade datasets for national wildlife refuges, refuge divisions, national fish hatcheries, wilderness areas, the training center, and wildlife production areas.
An empty BLUE CELL indicates that data have been combined or separated for that refuge and can be found in a neighboring cell. Data marked as "Not Available Online" can be obtained by request to northeastgis@fws.gov.
To Download Data: Right-click on file name and save file locally using "Save Target As" option.
To View Metadata: Click on "metadata" to view in your browser; or,
the boundary file metadata is contained within the coverage as an .xml file or the ppolygon shapefile.
Additional Notes: Attributes are best maintained when coverage is imported using ArcGIS.

This shape file combines all refuges into one (Geographic, NAD83, DD).



The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is developing national standards for digitizing and managing boundary data for Service lands. A description of the project can be found at: Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Data Guidelines. We will convert the refuge boundaries to the new standard once it has been formally adopted.
