COMaP launches new version and interactive website!

COMaP (the Colorado Ownership, Management and Protection dataset) has undergone a major update at CSU's Colorado Natural Heritage Program (CNHP). The work was supported by a Conservation Excellence grant from Great Outdoors Colorado, and CCLT has been a partner to the database upgrade and online mapping interface.

Colorado State University has a good writeup on the COMaP update here.

COMaP is the most comprehensive map of protected lands in the state. The new COMaP has significantly updated federal and state lands (which make up almost half of the state) and an additional 355,000 acres of lands conserved under easements are now in COMaP compared to v9. For more information about map updates, check out their update log here.

We are excited to announce the newly revised map and website
You no longer have to use GIS software to use this valuable resource!

The ongoing updates and services to this database will be supported with subscriptions. Please consider subscribing for these benefits:

  • Access to the latest protected lands data through an online map
  • Use the interactive map to view and identify protected lands, query the map and download spreadsheets, overlay your files (kml or shp) or add comments and draw polygons on the areas you know best. This is especially useful for non-GIS users.
  • Access to a suite of data files from the data download center
  • Download the geodatabase and layer files to build your own maps and custom analyses, or serve the COMaP map service from your website. This is especially useful for GIS users.

Please visit the COMaP website to learn more about the service and how you can use it to support your work. Here's a handy brochure with more information for you and your organization. Questions? Email CCLT or email the COMaP project team at CNHP.
