Gradient provided The 300 Committee Land Trust with our GIS expertise to assist in the creation of updated maps for Cape Cod’s Moraine Trail.
The Moraine Trail in Falmouth, Massachusetts traverses 11 miles of woodlands along the Buzzard’s Bay Moraine, offering visitors a unique Cape Cod hiking experience. The trail is owned and maintained by The 300 Committee Land Trust (T3C), which is a private, non-profit land trust whose mission is to permanently preserve and protect open space in Falmouth.
Having accurate, up-to-date maps of properties and trails is a key component of successful land stewardship, conservation efforts, and community outreach.”
Having accurate, up-to-date maps of properties and trails is a key component of successful land stewardship, conservation efforts, and community outreach. Gradient provided our expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database development and mapping to assist T3C by creating a new set of maps of the entire Moraine Trail that accurately represent the trail’s current conditions, routes, and relevant information (e.g., parking, points of interest, natural history, ecology, geology). TC3 hosts the updated map on its website for the public to use as a guide during hiking and virtual explorations.
