Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Llano Estacado is a physiographic region located in the southern Great Plains of North America. Renowned for its remarkably level surface and the towering escarpments along its outer margins, the elevated plains of the Llano Estacado form an immense tableland that stands in high relief at the southern end of the Great Plains. The Llano Estacado is not a complex region but there still remains some uncertainty regarding the precise definition of its boundaries. Recognizing that a scientific study of the Llano Estacado region must include a firm definition of its boundaries, a recent attempt was made by the authors to better define the boundaries of this region. Here we provide digital map data in KML format.
