The Wiscland 2 project is moving forward with more detailed maps after receiving positive feedback on the initial Level 1 product delivery in January. As the maps get more complex there are new challenges, but the initial results are very promising.
There is still a lot of work to be done before the final product is finished in the summer of 2016, but initial accuracy results show overall accuracy exceeds 90 percent for this draft product.
The SCO has released a suite of ArcPy tools to handle the most common hurdles to parcel data submission.
The fieldwork season has wrapped up and the Wiscland 2 team is now making maps! Between the beginning of June and end of August, DNR field crews gathered over 16,000 additional sample points representing the current land cover of our state.
