Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

State, County, and Watershed Maps for Washington State

Ecology conducts projects that use Geographic Information System (GIS) produced maps as aids in accomplishing its mission. The agency builds and maintains GIS maps in order to help our staff and the public understand the diverse natural and cultural environment we live and work in. As a public service, we are making some of our maps available for download here.
