Farmland Assessment Maps
The District has been using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to produce multi-layered maps consisting of aerial photographs, soils, wetlands, topographical information, streets, tax maps, and other vital information pertaining to the area of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. Based upon soil classifications, maps can be produced for submittal to municipal tax officials for farmland assessment. These maps will include the block and lot information for a farm, and the boundaries of each parcel of land will be delineated on an aerial photograph. The map will also include the total acreage for the farm, as well as a breakdown of acreage based upon the soil type and soil classification. For more information, please contact the District Office.
To utilize the technical resources available in the District Office, the District asks that you call ahead to make an appointment. This is to ensure that a staff member will be available for your particular questions and needs.
