​​About Framework​​​

Through the Oregon Framework Program, GIS staff and users across all levels of government collaborate to assemble and share important statewide GIS datasets, called Framework data. By working collaboratively, the Framework community increases efficiency, reduces costs, and improves access to geospatial data for everyone. 
Framework data are fundamental geospatial data sets intended to serve the purposes of a broad range of users and are organized into Framework themes, such as Administrative Boundaries and Geoscience. Framework datasets are developed to adopted standards, shared openly, and maintained through a voluntary, collaborative, community-based effort participated in by local, regional, and state level agencies within Oregon. ​Read more about the Framework Program Goals and FIT Charter.
