MassGIS Online Viewer (OLIVER)

OLIVER - What is it?

MassGIS Online Viewer (OLIVER) is a free web mapping tool for browsing Massachusetts data layers and gis layers. One of the really neat things about this tool is that it allows you to select from numerous layers and select the region on the map you would like to extract data for. The output format is a set of ESRI shapefiles (.shp). The generated shapefiles are zipped up into a single file for easy download.
