A Lancaster County Greenprint is an excellent idea. The models that create maps like these are not difficult, but compiling the electronic data layers can be. A lot depends on what digital data exists for land use, property boundaries, soils etc. at the county level and how much needs to be created fresh. Could be you have plenty of data at the regional planning agency level but no one has put it to this use. Glad to talk more. Tim

Where can I find maps like this for Lancaster County, PA? We're facing the same thing--farmland is valued, except it's not. Developers drive policy, policymakers are weak, and the result is pop-up houses across the best soil in the country. Sigh.

Press on, friend.
