Atlas of Yellowstone Park

Yellowstone area universities, National Park Service experts, and other federal and private agencies have joined forces with the University of Oregon to develop the Atlas of Yellowstone, the first atlas dedicated to a national park and its surrounding region. The geographic focus of the atlas will be on Yellowstone National Park; however, maps and graphics will cover the entire region, including Grand Teton National Park. The Atlas began as a UO geography class project in 2002. The students focused on mapping a very specific area within Yellowstone National Park. Since then, the Atlas has expanded dramatically to be inclusive of the Greater Yellowstone region and is now approximately 30 percent complete.
