Land Use Decision-making Maps available for Towns in Lamprey River Watershed

The GIS maps linked below cover all of the communities in the Lamprey River Watershed. These copyrighted maps originated in my dissertation work from 2006-2009 in the Natural Resources and Earth Systems Science Program (NRESS) at UNH. Funded through UNH and a NOAA National Estuarine Research Reserve Social Science Fellowship, my dissertation work included significant outreach and participatory research with the communities in the watershed as well as collaborations with the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (GBNERR) and its Coastal Training Program, N.H. Sea Grant (NHSG) and other organizations.

During the course of my dissertation work, a number of individuals and community groups expressed interest in having copies of the field maps made available to the general public. NHSG and GBNERR covered the costs of printing the maps through the GIS lab at the UNH Complex Systems Research Center and each town has received a copy of its map and a copy of the larger regional map for the use of town boards, committees, commissions and citizens.

For additional information about my research, please see my dissertation at UNH (publication number AAT 3400344). If there are questions about the design or content of the maps, please contact me.
