Section 508 Compliance and Geographic Information System (GIS)-based Figures
At present, the accessibility of GIS in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act is quite limited. The inherent graphical nature of GIS and the volumes of data represented make such compliance more difficult. EIS maps developed from GIS software currently do not meet the ADA and Section 508 accessibility requirements. In addition, many of these references listed on this page have been created separate from the EIS and are not Section 508 compliant as a result. If you use assistive technology and the format of these GIS pages and references prevent you from obtaining necessary data, please contact the webmaster at Webmaster for other technical assistance.
