CALIFORNIA GIS AND DATA MANAGEMENT

The Bureau of Land Management California data library allows users to access geospatial data sets as either a downloadable ESRI file geodatabase, or through Web Services. These data sets are updated as needed. Users of the data should refer to the metadata should they have any specific questions. No warranty is made by the BLM for use of the data for purposes not intended by the BLM.
