The Greenbelt Mapper, features two unique tools that help planners, land trusts, and open space districts as well as learning land-use advocates research the development pressures, protection measures, and inherent values of the land outside our cities and towns.
Is there a particular area you’d like to showcase to a colleague, committee, or a potential buyer interested in protecting land? Customize the layers you want to show—like critical habitat or greenbelt preserves—then draw a shape around the selected area. Then click to produce a PDF report that lists the exact size and values associated with that land.
