Lewis and Clark Historic Trail

Lewis and Clark Project

Project Dates: 2 February 2009 - 20 November 2009

Funding Sponsor: National Park Service

Principal Investigator: William Gribb - WyGISC Academic Affiliate, Scott Lieske

Co-Principal Investigator: Phil Polzer

Project Summary:

The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail (LCNHT) was authorized by an Act of Congress (PL-95-625) in 1978. With the enactment of this law, a new era had begun to preserve and promote one of America's most significant historic events and the corresponding route in the western United States. This project is designed to assist the National Park Service in maintaining, updating and expanding the directional and interpretive information along the Lewis and Clark National Historical Trail and to provide the information and procedures that will be the foundation for a flexible spatial data collection and maintenance system. This system will provide the background and basis for long term Trail planning.
