    Description

    Inappropriate development or land use on private inholdings in a matrix of predominantly public land have the potential to profoundly impact backcountry landscapes. Beyond damage to natural systems and cultural resources, ramifications include impacts on neighboring communities dependent upon tourism and backcountry recreation for their economic vitality. Limited financial resources make geotechnologies an ideal tool for prioritizing inholdings for land conservation acquisition or other means of protection. The World Wide Web holds tremendous promise for distributing geographic information and applications for use in conservation planning by local governments, land managers, and conservation professionals. Two example projects in the rugged San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado illustrate the potential and challenges that these technologies hold for rural communities.
