Oregon’s new state map shows BLM land, terrain


A new color appears on the updated 2015- 2017 Official Oregon State Map: it designates lands owned by the Bureau of Land Management, offering travelers another piece of information as they navigate the state.

Also new this year, the base map depicts terrain with shaded relief. The covers feature Trillium Lake shadowed by Mt. Hood, and Proxy Falls, located along the old McKenzie Highway. Maps are free and available at visitor centers, DMV offices, chambers of commerce and other outlets.

This year’smap contains safety messages, a welcome from Governor Kate Brown, and other important information for visitors and travelers. It also includes updated insets of major cities in the state, as well as updates to state highways, interchanges and other roadways as a result of construction projects completed since the last publication, in the summer of 2013.

ODOT’s Geographic Information Services unit created and refined the files for the map; the map team, which includes ODOT’s Photo/Video Services group and ODOT Communications staff, won a national award for the 2011 – 2013 Official Oregon State Map. More information about the new maps is available online .
