GIS information encompasses practically every aspect of daily life. As more of our world is modeled with GIS, the amount of information compiled grows exponentially. Consequently, it is important that GIS data is properly organized to allow people to efficiently make use of this information.

Pueblo County's numerous GIS data layers are organized thematically, based upon guidelines from the Federal Geographic Data Committee and modified slightly to meet Pueblo County's needs.

Environmental GIS layers contain information about the plants, animals, soils and non man-made elements that exist in our landscape. Most utilized layers in this category are soils, optimal crop soil zones, conservation easements and wildlife habitat zones.
