​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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 a​re developed to adopted standards, shared openly, and maintained through a voluntary, collaborative, co​mmunity-based effort participated in by local, regional, and state level agencies within Oregon. ​

Information about the individual Framework themes and the latest Framework Data Inventory are located on GEOHub​.

Framework Forums ​

In the spring and fall of each year, the Framework Coordinator hosts an all-day event to support the Framework Program. More information about past forums and the next upcoming forum can be found here​.
