It has been proposed that this page or section be merged with United States/National Park System. (Discuss)
Flag of United States Part of United States mapping project.

Many national parks have GIS data available for download through the National Park Service Data Store or the NPS open data hub. While checking the license of available GIS data is always appropriate, US Government works are in the public domain. There are some files very relevant to OSM (trails and roads; recreation points listing campsites, docks etc) and some not so useful to the normal OSM reader (wildlife habitats).

  • Currently working on roads from this dataset. There is no way to tell the road designation that I can see, so I am uploading everything with highway=road and planning on manually fixing/combining with the (untouched) TIGER data. Alexrudd
