GIS Services

A particular type of assistance available through our staff is map visualization and spatial data assessment using computer geographic information system resources.  This tool can support partners who are addressing issues consistent with our conservation responsibilities. 

Examples of GIS assistance include:

  • Developing and printing work maps for field site visits; 
  • Layering and sorting existing data to address a particular conservation question or goal;
  • Collecting spatial field data, sometimes with GPS tools;
  • Developing or modifying existing landscape analyses that sort and rank features;
  • Creating publishable maps and data tables to publicize conservation issues or results.

Below is an example of focus areas analyses for land trust conservation work.
