    Geospatial technology is used to acquire, manipulate and store geographic information.

    The geospatial group at Texas A&M Forest Service uses geospatial data and technology to develop applications that provide state-of-the-art access to information on forest lands and wildfire issues across the state. These applications are targeted to landowners, managers, government officials, local community groups and the public to facilitate making timely decisions in the management and protection of their forests.

    Learn more about how Texas A&M Forest Service applications can help you accomplish these objectives through Texas Forest Information PortalTexas Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal, and Texas Interagency Coordination Center.
