The UC Davis library, in conjunction with UCSB, Virginia Tech, other partner organizations, and contributions from the general public, are creating a publicly accessible geospatial version American Viticultural Areas boundaries. Using the text descriptions from the ATPF Code of regulations, we will build this data from the official descriptions. These data will be made freely available in geoJSON and shapefile format. This dataset will provide wine researchers with an important tool as they examine the scientific, economic and historical aspects of viticulture. https://github.com/UCDavisLibrary/ava
