Welcome to Land Matters Map Collection
Land Matters will be offering hundreds of interactive maps to help provide information about the land. Every thing from Land Status to soil analysis, water flows and weather will be available.
The most commonly requested maps involving Federal land status including management, mining claims, withdrawals, grazing rights and many other information layers that have been removed from the public use will be recreated here. Many have asked for a new geocommunicator to be revived, we intend to do better than that.
The mapping portion of the Land Matters website is an auxilary to the central Library concept. All of the maps will be accessible from the library as well as here. More useful still will be a new concept we are developing that will enable the use of a map to search the library database for books, articles, photos and videos that are tied to the area being studied.
Click on a category on the right hand menu. A list will open below the menu item. When you scroll over the list items they will highlight in green. Click on the highlighted item of your choice and the map for that item will open in a new window.
All of the maps are interactive Each map is created when you click the refresh (two arrows chasing each other), move the map or zoom in or out. Pick the layers you want to display and zoom in to see more detail. Use the information button (the big i) to see more information about the features near your click point. Within the results shown there are often links to even more detailed information.
If there is a particular map subject you would like us to include in the collection just let us know and we will do our best to put that together for you.
