GRANIT Municipal GIS Survey 2006/2007

About the Survey

The NH GRANIT at Complex Systems Research Center, University of New Hampshire, in collaboration with the nine regional planning commissions (RPCs), has completed a survey of all municipalities in the state to better understand municipal tax parcel data holdings as well as related data sets.

The survey was designed to collect key information about digital tax parcel, zoning, elevation, and image data, including scale, resolution, accuracy, format, etc. We were also interested to know what municipal practices are in place relative to data maintenance, and whether data distribution policies have been developed.

GRANIT staff at Complex Systems Research Center designed the survey with input from the RPCs. RPC staff administered the survey to the towns within their planning regions over approximately a six month period from June, 2006 through January, 2007. Final survey results were compiled by GRANIT staff in March, 2007.


This work was funded by a grant from the NH GIS Conservation Collaborative. Additional resources were provided by FEMA through the Map Modernization Management Support program. GRANIT would also like to thank the Regional Planning Commissions for the time and effort they dedicated to this project.
