Cool - thanks Bob. I think that project would require an on-the-ground knowledge of the property however. One of these days I would like to take on some mapping projects, but I have too much work remaining on my site for now. That looks like the kind of job for some local person with a GPS and some time on their hands.

I hiked the Black Run Preserve a couple of years ago. Full of trash, shingles, furniture and mattresses. ATV tracks and ruts everywhere.

I have the gps but not a whole lot of time. Is That all they want is someone to walk the trails and then put them on a topo or an Aerial and turn them into PDF"s.heck i can do that. If it was closer I"d go for it

If you read it closely they will have people walk the trails for the person doing this. I don't think it requires the person doing this to actually go there.

I could help them somewhat and would if I knew exactly what they were looking for. They should show a sample. I wonder if they have a KMZ , KML, or GPX file of their property. I have the deeds and have some of them already in those file format.

I was there in the spring too and did the outside loop. I did not see any ATV tracks. The only garbage was an old abandoned car down in a ditch on one trail.

I drove there today and looked around. Really changed since I frequented the wood there in the summer of 1971. There are a few stones for us to look for even on other properties around there. I wish I knew then what I know now.
