NVCRIS

According to NRS 383.021 and the National Historic Preservation Act Section 101 (C)(1)(c), the  State Historic Preservation Office must keep an inventory of the state’s cultural resources to assist federal, state and local agencies in planning projects as to avoid impacts to important cultural resources.

The Nevada Cultural Resource Information System (NVCRIS) is a collection of online GIS database services which contain recorded archaeological and architectural resources and inventories for the state.

The NVCRIS archaeological service is available to those users who meet the Secretary of Interior's Standards for Archaeology.  To request access to the archaeological service, or for more information on the architectural GIS, please contact Karyn de Dufour, NVCRIS data manager at This email address is being protected from spambots.
