Geospatial Information Technology
The Geospatial Information Technology program specializes in location intelligence within the Yurok Ancestral Territory for the Tribe and its members. The mission of the G.I.T. Program is to serve as part of the foundation for Yurok Tribal Departments, Organizations and Workgroups, by providing GIS Services, maps, land information, land records and technical support services. The G.I.T. Program utilizes spatial technologies with location intelligence such as mobile apps and spatial data within Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and land information integration to provide a comprehensive view of lands and activities across Yurok Territory.
The G.I.T. Program is within the Information Technology department and provides services to all tribal departments. We are the clearinghouse for all internal GIS Data, which is the information that corresponds with a place on the earth’s surface (the geographic location). Examples include parcel lines, community locations, hydrologic features (rivers, creeks), roads, timber harvest units, and water systems, just to name a few.
