The Health Department is responding to increasing demand for access to public health information that can be viewed using mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablet computers, by producing maps and reports that are tailored to mobile devices.
One example is our Blue-Green Algae Monitoring Reports which display differently for desktop computers and mobile devices.
Commonly used Vermont public health GIS data layers, formatted as shapefiles, can be downloaded as compressed .zip files using the links below.
Shapefiles can be loaded into a variety of GIS software and GIS Viewer applications. Additional Vermont GIS data is available from the state’s VGIS Data Warehouse.

GIS Technology is loosely coordinated across Vermont state government through the Enterprise GIS Consortium (EGC), which includes members from many different state agencies and departments
The Vermont Center for Geographic Information serves as the state’s GIS public non-profit organization.
