CMAP recently released the 2015 Land Use Inventory, a survey of northeastern Illinois’ land use in geographic information systems (GIS) format. The dataset is now available for download through the CMAP Data Hub. The Inventory is based on a review of 2015 county assessor data and aerial photography, focusing on areas that have undergone change since the 2013 Inventory.
The Land Use Inventory is an essential input to CMAP's land use and transportation research. Other users of the data include county planning departments, regional transportation agencies, federal and state agencies, university researchers, non-governmental organizations, environmental consulting firms, and civil engineering firms. Visit the Land Use Inventory page for more information.
Production on the 2018 Inventory is underway, with completion anticipated in late 2021.
