Welcome to the Columbia River National Scenic Area GIS Data Dictionary. This page contains metadata, or data about data, for our spatial data sets. The data sets are organized by theme which are shown in the table of contents frame. For example, if you are interested in a data set that has to do with water, just click on the water link in the table of contents. Then click on the name of the data set of interest to view the data dictionary.

Each data dictionary will explain geographic information about the data set, who the data steward is, how the data set was built, and other associated information. It will also describe the database tables that are associated with the data set. Please contact the data steward (if noted) if you have questions about the content of the data.
