The Land Information Access Association gathered the collection of maps available in this Community Center from a variety of federal, state, and local government sources. These sources include the:
Department of Environmental Quality
Environmental Protection Agency
Michigan Department of Natural Resources
U.S. Census Bureau
U.S. Department of Agriculture
And Van Buren County among others
Local field teams participating in the development of the Community Center will be collecting information such as historic sites or points of interest for specific communities and maps will be created showing these points.
The Community Center maps provide access to a wide range of information about our community from census maps to natural resources and local points of interest. By using these maps, you will have the ability to visually compare (overlay) different maps, zoom in to see details of an area, search for a parcel number or property owner, or click on a road to learn its name. The maps should be used in conjunction with information available in the Land Use Planning and Community Information areas of the Community Center. They are intended to promote more informed land use planning, helping to protect our natural resources and the things we care about in our communities.
