Computer mapping technology, known as GIS (geographical information system), enables a more sophisticated method of tracking and viewing protected lands, and other environmental data, in New Hampshire. It is now easy to create customizable maps of conservation lands with only a few clicks of a mouse. The resources below provide public access to this technology so you can view protected lands in your community, throughout the state, or in other regions of New England.
This GIS tool provides public access to information about the state's protected land, water resources, and transportation network. With the viewer, you can survey protected areas, query for specific parcels based on location and print or save the maps you create.
The New Hampshire Geographically Referenced Analysis and Information Transfer System (NH GRANIT) is a cooperative project to create, maintain and make available a statewide geographic database serving the information needs of state, regional and local decision-makers. A collaborative effort between the University of New Hampshire and the Office of State Planning, the core GRANIT System is housed at the UNH Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space in Durham.
