The 2023 Recreational Trails Summit’s Mapping and Data Needs session included a demonstration of NVRC's new GIS data warehouse mapping application. 

Identified as a regional priority at the 2022 trails summit and developed in 2023, the data warehouse serves as a trails mapping application and data resource for Northern Virginia bike and pedestrian trails maintained by the region's local governments, non-profit agencies, and NVRC. Overall, the warehouse provides key resources for regional planning and informs the general public of trails in the community that can be used for recreation, leisure activity, and transportation. NVRC was pleased to host the 2023 Summit in October.

As a note, trails data schemas and spatial accuracies differ among entities as this is a data warehouse and not intended to be a standardized data set. Access the data warehouse by clicking here.
