Pennsylvania Base Map Themes


The Data Program Task Force has continued to build out the core base map themes that were approved by GeoBoard members in December 2016. Following the adoption of the recommended core base map for Pennsylvania, the Data Program Task Force concentrated on identifying the authoritative sources of the base map data and has completed the Stage 1 analysis. Stage 1 consists of the identification and assimilation of various data sources of the base map layers in their current state. The original 12 themes were adjusted to mimic data themes as defined for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). Workgroups have been created to continue the development of the base map themes.
