Lower Trent Conservation

Geographic Information System

Lower Trent Conservation’s information must be organized, up to date, and accessible, with mechanisms in place for sharing data with others to assist with collaborative watershed management and protection.  Some of our data is best displayed visually, as maps, through our Geographic Information System (GIS).  GIS is a computerized system of organizing, storing, analyzing, editing, and displaying spatial data and is an important component of our information management.  GIS is used by Lower Trent Conservation staff to assist with making decisions about land use planning, regulations, managing our own lands, and stewardship programs.  Lower Trent Conservation also assists municipalities and others with GIS projects on a fee for service basis.
