What can I use the GoHunt application for?
is very useful for data discovery
GoHunt is an interactive mapping application that allows
any user with an Internet connection and a web browser
to view and query a diverse set of data that pertain to
wildlife recreational opportunities in Washington State.
The user can select data categories available for display
from the ‘Map Layers’ list located on the left
side of the screen. Customized views of numerous data sets
can be interactively created and printed, using the navigation
and search tools available in the mapping application.
The user can also access and explore additional information
and data associated with many of the map layers (data themes)
available. Some of the data sources used in this application
include: game management unit boundaries, elk units, deer
units, wildlife areas, public land ownership, water access
sites, big game harvest statistics, road networks, satellite
imagery, topographic maps, place names, and much more…
GoHunt has standardized ‘pre-canned’ maps available
for download and printing
Static, large-format maps are available to the user to download
and print. The user does not have to launch the GoHunt Internet
Mapping application in order to get access to these pre-defined
maps. These maps are available for download from the main
GoHunt web page. Available maps include: deer area maps,
elk area maps, game management unit maps, and some wildlife
area maps. These maps are in PDF format. A free copy of Adobe
Acrobat Reader is required for viewing/printing PDF files.
GoHunt has some unprecedented capabilities that we hope
you will find useful
The GoHunt mapping application has powerful data navigation,
selection, and query tools. You can highlight your specific
geographic area of interest within data themes. For example,
the user can navigate by selecting a GMU name/number or wildlife
area name or place name or latitude/longitude coordinate
or water access site name or county name or many other options.
The application also allows the user to submit customized
queries for big game harvest statistics by both reporting
unit (GMU, statewide, etc.) and by harvest statistics (points
harvested, days hunted per hunter, etc.). Many of the data
themes within the application also contain links to other
useful sources of information, such as: legal descriptions
in game regulations pamphlets, links to recreational opportunities
on WDFW Wildlife Areas, links to facilities available at
WDFW managed water access sites, and much more… The
GoHunt interface provides numerous data viewing and printing
customization tools. Once the desired combination of map
layers are displayed for your particular area of the state,
you can print your own custom map.
GoHunt provides a feedback mechanism
This is our first release of the GoHunt application. It was
designed as a customer-service delivery mechanism for accessing
information and maps on hunting and other wildlife recreation
activities in the state. We are very interested in getting
your feedback on the features and functionality of this tool.
