Border Field State Park is on the very southwestern corner of the United States and 15 miles south of San Diego. Border Field is located within the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve, an important wildlife habitat. The sand dunes and salt marshes give refuge to critically threatened and endangered birds such as the Western Snowy Plover, the California Least Tern, and the Light-footed Clapper Rail. The park provides restrooms, picnic areas, barbecues, horse corrals, and interpretive displays. Visitors enjoy beach combing, hiking, horseback riding, and bird watching.
PanGIS provided Geospacial Services for the Border Field State Park Cultural Geo-database to assist District Archaeologist with ongoing project reviews for DPR facilities maintenance. PanGIS, Inc. reviewed San Diego Coast District archaeological reports and site records and geo-reference maps to create missing shapefiles for all excavation, significant feature, event area, and site boundary data. Data was uploaded into DPR Geo-database for Border Field Site Park. Staff will populate attribute table with DPR defined classes and attributes. Where shapefiles exists, staff cross checked report data and edited geo-database as necessary including loading existing shapefiles into database, populating attribute tables, and checking for discrepancies.
