Announcement: GreenInfo Network releases new Calif. Protected Areas Database (CPAD)

CPAD is a GIS inventory of all parks and other protected open lands in California (49 million acres, 14,000 named units owned by 980 agencies/organizations) - more information and download links are at  . The new edition of CPAD has major improvements in both data coverage and data structure, and comes with a completely revamped   web site. This update is the first of at least three that are supported by a grant to GreenInfo Network   from the California Strategic Growth Council  .

You can help improve the data by taking the online CPAD survey (start survey now   ) and by submitting recommended changes to the data using the CPAD MapCollaborator  , an online map wiki that makes reviewing CPAD data quick and easy (you can choose lands by agency to review, leave precise map notes and/or upload your own data using this application).
