Basic GIS Map Layers - up to 2007



Basic Layers from the MCM-LTER spatial data holdings have been exported and symbolized, and they are available for download here. Most of these layers date from Oct-2007 or earlier, please see the Polar GeoSpatial Center for more updated base and specialized layers.

The spatial GIS layers contained in this ZIP file were exported from the 2006 MCM-LTER Spatial Database (now deprecated) in the ESRI Shape File format. For your convenience, Layer Files (.lyr),  which are already symbolized, are also included. The spatial layers contained in the MCM-LTER Spatial Database are accurate (depending on the date the shapefiles in this ZIP file were last exported, they may be out of date).
