Interactive maps & GIS Data

The Gorge Commission works closely with partner organizations to develop and maintain spatial data that informs planning, monitoring, and project development. The National Scenic Area is a diverse landscape – our GIS staff coordinates with various partner organizations to ensure our data reflects the best available information.

Utilize our interactive maps to navigate the complexities of land ownership and land use designations and to understand the scenic, natural, cultural, recreational, and economic resources that we protect.
