Google Maps and Google Earth Data

Google Maps and Google Earth show you DEC's data in interactive maps with satellite imagery, photographs, local business information and driving directions. Google Earth allows map data to be viewed in a 3D virtual environment.

DEC's Geodata Inventory can be browsed at the NYS GIS Clearinghouse . The metadata for each dataset provides descriptive information about how, when and by whom a specific set of data was collected and how the data is formatted and accessed. Some data sets are available for download as shapefiles, and some can be downloaded and viewed in products like Google Earth.

Map Collection

The Map Collection contains non-interactive (static) maps that you may view, save or print. You can find maps on hunting, fishing, recreation, wildlife and other topics

Interactive Maps

Each interactive map contains data on a certain topic or theme, including nature, environmental facilities, and minerals. You can use interactive tools to explore the data and create customized maps.
