NRD MapMaker is a web-based application that can be used to generate custom maps. The MapMaker system uses ESRI's ArcServer technology to deliver maps through a web browser.
Maps are interactive and can be panned, zoomed, queried, and printed according to your specifications.
Who Is It For?
MapMaker is intended for anyone with an interest in generating custom geo-referenced maps: farmers, landowners, city and county officials, utility managers, etc.
MapMaker was developed to provide all of these groups and more with easy access to geographical data compiled by natural resources districts, state and federal agencies, and other groups, without the need for expensive GIS software.
What Information is Available?
Currently, MapMaker information is available for eastern Nebraska. In the future, coverage may be expanded to include other areas of the state.
Within the current coverage area of the system, a variety of information is available for use in generating custom maps, including:
- Major & Minor Roadways
- Aerial Photography from Farm Service Agency
- Census Tracts & Blocks
- Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance Boundaries
- Natural Resources District Boundaries
- County Boundaries
- Township Boundaries
- Soil Data (SSURGO)
This is not an exhaustive list; the system is continually updated as new coverages become available.
Who Developed the System?
The NRD MapMaker system was developed by a partnership including four NRDs and the Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance. The Lower Platte North NRD designed, hosts and maintains the MapMaker website.
