Mapping

CLEAR’s geospatial expertise is focused on remote sensing analysis, development of online geospatial land use tools, and training for professionals and others in the use of various types of geospatial technology. CLEAR’s geospatial programs and tools are designed to be accessible to everyone, from a commissioner looking for a PDF map of town soils to a GIS professional looking to download data or brush up on some computer skills.
