Geospatial Data

For a richer user experience, try our new Esri-hosted "Open Data" site to acquire Wyoming Game & Fish authoritative geospatial data! It is located at wyowildlife.wgfd.opendata.arcgis.com. This site offers users the ability to review data set descriptions, preview data in tabular and map form, and save data in multiple formats. But if you need formal metadata, that information is not currently available at this Open Data site and you should proceed to download data here at this website by following the links below.

Wyoming Game & Fish geospatial data files are not represented as legal documents and are not intended to be used as such. The information contained in these data is dynamic and may change over time. Locational accuracy reflects resource-level use; no professional-grade surveys were conducted to either support or improve inherent accuracies. It is the responsibility of the data user to use the data appropriately and consistent within the limitations of geospatial data in general and these data in particular as outlined in each data set's accompanying metadata.
