The report documents the results of a survey of over 400 existing geographic data bases covering Montana and Wyoming. The data bases surveyed include automated and nonautomated data relating to 12 physical, biological and economic factors which are of potential value to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Region 6) as well as other Federal and state natural resource planners. The 12 factors were soils, geology, climate, vegetation, land use, ownership, topography, socio-economics, wildlife resources, water resources, mineral industry plans and land management plans. Each of the 400 data bases were evaluated in terms of subject, format, area of coverage, data vintage, spatial resolution, range of data reliability, cast and method of acquisition.
