A new report jointly published by the Wisconsin Department of Administration and State Cartographer's Office discusses how Wisconsin Land Information Program (WLIP) funding is invested in county geospatial infrastructure, the 2013 county survey results, and the challenges and opportunities for the aggregation of county map data into statewide GIS layers.
The WLIP, administered by the Division of Intergovernmental Relations within the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA), provides over $10 million annually in public funding to Wisconsin counties for the modernization of local land records.
In 2012, counties retained a statewide total of $9.7 million in local register of deeds recording fees for land information and received $740,000 in WLIP grants.
