Land Status Maps

Don't know if any of you are aware of this site but it shows public and private property and many other things. It can be hard to navigate but once you get used to it, it is great. Does anyone else have any other programs or sites like this?

Re: Land Status Maps

Thanks. Been looking for a way to find the private land on a USGS map. Still haven't figured it out on this site....

Re: Land Status Maps

That looks like a helpful site, though I didn't figure it out either.

Here is another option.

BLM map on your GPS at the LRH Gear Shop

The "chip" version pops into your Garmin hand held.

The download version can be copied to your own blank chip and/ or -- you can install it onto your PC so you can do viewing and planning on your monitor.

Re: Land Status Maps

Hey Mac,

This website is only for wyoming, but you can use the pulldown menu and see gmu boundaries and then click on land ownership for the state. You can also overlay topographic quads and imagery. Use the sliders to adjust opacity, and you can get a "shaded-relief-topo-land-ownership map with GMU boundaries! Of course if you're not interested in Wyoming it won't help ya...

If you have a Garmin, I found this site has a number of freely available maps for most of the areas I hunt that includes private property.

Re: Land Status Maps

Visigoth,

That is indeed a good site for Garmin owners. If you look under "Colorado" there is a Western Land ownership overlay that includes up to date (August 2010) land ownership for CO, WY, UT, AZ, and NM all in one file...

That land ownership correlates better with BLM maps than the Wyoming-only land use one does.

Re: Land Status Maps

Be careful with some of the maps from GPSfiledepot. They use an out-dated federal lands database that can be inaccurate and incorrect in some areas. I have also found the geocommunicator data to be incomplete and out-dated in many areas so always double check no matter which product you are using.

Happy Hunting!
