Using CLEAR Web Tools for Local Conservation Planning
DATE: Tuesday November 8, 2011
TIME: 2:00 – 3:00 PM
COST: As always, it’s FREE!
Local land trusts and conservation commissions are major players in land conservation in Connecticut, yet few have direct access to technical resources that can help them in their task of permanently protecting open space. In many cases, web-based information and tools created by the UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) and its partners can help. These websites can be used by anyone — no geospatial expertise needed!
This presentation will use live online demonstration of these tools to show how they can be used to get a handle on state and local land use trends, and help analyze conservation opportunities. The “tour” will include examples using the Connecticut’s Changing Landscape website, the CT-ECO online mapping site, and other exciting destinations. We will leave ample time for questions from the audience.
