Integrating Spatial Data to Develop Community Priorities
how collaborative mapping can be a planning tool for regional networks. This webinar will describe
a large, multi-jurisdictional collaborative planning process in Collin County,
Texas (north of Dallas) that resulted in a Regional Trails Master Plan. (In
this part of Texas, the term trail most often refers to a shared use path.) Collin
County covers 886 square miles and comprises 31 cities and towns, ranging from
urban/suburban to rural. Learn how these municipalities combined existing maps and GIS
data to develop an inventory of destinations and existing and planned
facilities. This database became the basis of the RTMP, which prioritizes
corridors, addresses gaps and linkages between municipalities, and provides a tool
to evaluate funding requests and coordinate projects.
