Preserved Land/Open Space Mapping in NJ: A Collaboration Success Story
Track: Cadastral and Land Records
Authors: Andy Rowan, Sean McGinnis
A grassroots proposal to create a statewide database of preserved land and open space rose through the New Jersey Geospatial Forum, the stateís coordinating body. A volunteer task force defined the requirements and logical database design. The projectís proponents were then able to secure funding from the stateís Green Acres Program to implement the system. Once completed, a web-based system will allow authorized contributors from all levels of government and land trusts to create and edit data.
