BSI Mapping Project

Geospatial Databases for Outdoor Recreation Advocacy



Why Mapping?

In order to advocate for human-powered recreation, BSI is partnering with Outdoor Alliance to gather mapping data and inform land managers about important recreational assets throughout Colorado.

•Know where users are going to inform land use planning and managment
•Share info with land managers
•Identify conflicts with:
o Oil & Gas Development
o Wildlife Impacts
o User Groups
•Inform future planning & management
o Travel Planning – New Trails
o Parking & Access
o Land Use Designations – Wilderness, Recreation Management Areas
•Use data in public comments, citizens proposals, etc.

Watch our mapping presentation on YouTube now to learn more about our data collection process and mapping resources.
