Overview

Atlas is providing King Conservation District GIS services.

The work began with support to the Boise Creek sub-basin stewardship effort in KCD. See the Boise Creek project area below.

This project was followed with an effort to GIS-enable KCD. See the Spatially Enable project area below.

Stewardship

One of the core purposes of the Four Creeks Unincorporated Area Council (UAC) is "participation" which can take many forms.

Stewardship is a form of participation that 1) demonstrates a very high level of committment and 2) is focused on the community.

King Conservation District is "stewardship". Every one of its services, from farm plans to farm visits to education, is focused on balancing stewardship with the objectives of the land owner.

This focus on participation creates the opportunity for mutual value between the UAC and KCD.

Not unlike other smaller organizations, KCD currently faces a relatively high GIS "cost of entry". The UAC's Atlas program, provides a unique way to bring GIS services to KCD while adding value to the Green River Community College GIS students.
