New technologies have allowed the State of Vermont to develop a user-friendly online mapping system that the public can use to better understand how land is used, monitored, and potentially impacted by environmental or other types of hazards and impacts. This system, offered by the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, and called the Natural Resources Atlas, is a useful tool for real estate professionals and home buyers and sellers to view conditions of particular sites. Information such as lot lines, underground storage tanks, flood hazard zones, and storm water mitigation projects can be viewed and searched for. Participants will learn how to upload individualized data to display on the map, measure the size of properties and buildings, and draw shapes (e.g., of a yard). Each participant will create a personalized map of an area of interest, and learn to create, download and print maps for specific areas of interest. The course will allow participants to get hands-on with the ANR Atlas to practice using mapping tools.
