Abstract or Summary
  • The Greenbelt Land Trust (GLT) (a grass-roots conservation group in Oregon) is interested in a conservation plan for the Marys River Corridor. To facilitate this effort, a resource inventory was required and a Geographic Information System (GIS) data base used to compile the inventory (called the Marys River Project (MRP)). This data base is to be used for identification of properties for conservation easements, a non-regulatory method of habitat and resource conservation. The GLTs implementation of conservation easements represents a trend toward alternative means of landuse management at the local level. Also, the use of GIS as a tool in land use planning is becoming a more common practice. Increasingly, government and other natural resource management groups are looking to GIS as an important component of resource protection and management. The set up of the MRP and additional uses of GIS data bases are explored in this paper. The greatest overall concern with any GIS stems from cost and access to equipment and personnel. Each of the cases investigated had some affiliation with government or university equipment. Additionally, a great deal of planning and time is involved in defining the questions to be answered (which also define what types of data is to be used). This study looks at all these issues.
