Land Owner Mapping for River Conservancy

Land Trust Map of Property Owners
GreenInfo Network developed this two section poster map for the Yuba River Conservancy to use in assessing land conservation opportunities. The top is an air photo, the bottom a parcel map, all coded to the landowners in the middle panel.
Client:   Yuba River Conservancy

Combining aerial images, basic mapping and property owner information in one poster is very useful for land trusts. This project was a creative approach to combining all of that in one large poster map.

Based in the Foothills of California's Sierra Nevada, the Yuba River Conservancy was seeking a map that could inform its assessment of conservation land opportunities. GreenInfo developed the idea of a "two-track" map that showed basic geography coupled with an aerial image, where both maps had overlays of parcel ownerships coded to a list in the center of the poster. The final map was 48" wide and has basic branding to match the land trust's graphic identity.

Results: The map of properties and river frontage was used to assess properties for acquisition potential.
