Gravel Road

CDGRS Mapper Geographic Information System (GIS)

The Dirt and Gravel Road Program maintains a customized GIS interface called Mapper to keep track of over 16,000 potential and completed project sites throughout Pennsylvania. PA's Conservation Districts utilize the CDGRS Mapper system for all aspects of project tracking for sites within their County. Districts also use Mapper as a paperless reporting system to report deliverables and financial details about completed road projects to the State.
