Mapping and Development…

The county government of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania has decided to invest in the mapping of the Allegheny River Trail.  A 32-mile stretch of land that encompasses 18 municipalities will be able to reap the benefits of the map by haing the interactive map detail the individualized ownership of the trail, various economic opportunities along the trail, and identifying the trail land characteristics.  The map itself will also connect with other interactive maps that have already been constructed regarding other parks and trails in the area.  The mapping of the trail and the adjacent communities will provide a level of information never before seen or difficult to obtain that will allow development in these areas to be much more accessible.
