GIS Data and Related Tables

Revised: October 23, 2011

These files when executed uncompress into multiple files which make up a shapefile dataset. Static shapefiles are updated as major revisions are made. Other shapefiles are updated daily from Division tabular datasets.

Utah GIS datasets for other themes are available from the Utah State Geographic Information Database at: http://agrc.its.state.ut.us

Large datasets can be obatained throught the State FTP site ftp://ftp.utah.gov/

GIS Data and Related Tables are projected using the North American Datum of 1927, UTM Zone 12 North, Meters as units, Clarke 1866 Ellipsoid
KML files are projected using EPSG:4326, WGS84 Datum, Degrees as units, WGS84 Ellipsoid.
