Gizmo Gadgets - New Wetlands Mapping Software

We may think that trends start in California, but not this one. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's got us on this one.

They're converting aerial maps to digital bits and bytes, and then electronically reviewing those maps to determine if wetlands have been filled in illegally. MDEP has been pretty successful with this new program, to the tune of some $280,000 in fines against just two companies.

Findlaw has the full scoop.

Just don't get caught dumping fill into wetlands in Massachusetts - it can come back and haunt you years later. Here in California, we're still in the stone age with GIS maps, and we still think that advance was pretty cool.

Can't wait to see some of the new gizmo gadget maps here.
