Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping is a critical conservation and planning tool.
GIS enables us to identify, analyze, and communicate patterns and relationships between any number of cultural or natural resources.
- We use GIS mapping to identify, analyze, and communicate information on: watershed conditions, biodiversity, soil quality and slope, habitat for endangered species protection, proposed and existing trail networks, conservation and agricultural easement sites, and protected and unprotected open space.
- We create comprehensive maps showing both natural and built features for each of our conservation and agricultural easement properties.
- We share this technology with local governments, organizations including other land trusts, and private landowners, by offering high-quality, customized color maps suitable for research, interactive presentations, and publication.
