Many of the National Weather Service data sets are available in formats that are able to be imported directly into Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or your own custom map viewers or web pages.  Data formats include downloadable shapefiles, web services, KML files and our basemaps in shapefile format.

As more data is made available in these formats, links to the data will be added to these pages. Click one of the GIS format links above to start exploring the NWS GIS data currently available!
