Maps/GIS: Federal Agencies Working Together to Improve Data in the Living Atlas

From ESRI:

The United States Geological Survey (USGS)’s Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) has been updated.

Version 1.4 of PAD-US benefited greatly from the efforts of the Federal Lands Workgroup of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). This workgroup includes the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and other agencies. The group was formed in 2011 to place an effort on the creation and yearly publication of a cadastral geodatabase of combined federal lands and waters.
