Park Mapping and Databases

The Division of Recreation and Parks’ Mapping and Database Management Section contains nearly a ½ terabyte of data in approximately 250,000 digital files. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is best described as a system to analyze, store, manipulate and present spatial data. Effective management requires a well-organized, comprehensive repository of assets located in state parks. The Mapping and Database Section’s GIS performs this role, as it continually maintains and publishes inventories of recreational, natural, cultural and operational spatial data that represent the entire state park system. The responsibilities of the mapping and database section include:

  • Boundary location for almost 800,000 acres of Division of Recreation and Parks Managed Areas--175 Parks and Trails
  • Land acquisition and property information on over 7,000 parcels
  • Management Plan Mapping
  • 4,700+ Structures
  • 4,800+ Management Zones
  • 3,000 Miles of Roads
  • 2,000 Miles of Trails
  • 30,000 Unique Natural Communities polygons classified into 95 distinct standardized ecosystem types
  • High-resolution elevation data
  • Land Management Uniform Accounting Council Report, Jurisdiction Report, Recreation Facility Inventory, Proceeds on Bond Financed Lands, Business Metrics
  • Natural Resources Tracking System
  • Emergency Response and Damage assessment

Florida State Parks Map Direct is a public online web map, featured on FloridaStateParks.org. It is mobile-friendly, GPS-active and displays the information most useful to park visitors, such as park entrances, points of interest, structures and trails. This is one of the most comprehensive and accessible web-based online park maps of its kind. It is an ongoing collaborative effort between the Division of Recreation and Parks Mapping and Database Section and the Office of Technology & Information Services GIS section.
