Maps of Public and Private Lands in the US


Recommended Posts

Here are a couple of good websites that show the public and private lands to help you collect fossils legally. Please add any of your suggestions.

Here is one that does not show ownership; it shows the satellite plus the elevation contours.

This is the same data source as your BLM link with other options. You can use the generate KML link on the bottom to add to your desktop version of Google Earth as well.

Acrevalue has decent landowner information by parcel as well and I've used it for to obtain landowner names when I don't have access to a plat map. It's missing a lot of data too but it's still a useful free source. I think to view the landowner it requires registration but all it requires is an email address. https://www.acrevalue.com/

Adding onto this, there are some apps that (at least in NY) are fairly thorough when it comes to parcel data and allow you to filter public lands, state land etc. There may be more out there, but I’ve worked with HuntStand, which is more feature rich (and obviously hunting oriented), and LandGlide, both of which do the job well, including searches and satellite maps overlain with parcel data. Sadly, I think both apps are subscription based, and/or cost $$. Something to consider especially on the go or in the field.

This reminds me of an app Georgia DNR puts out that is supposed to show public lands. I remember coworkers attesting to its reliability. https://georgiawildlife.com/outdoors-ga-app

 

I think more and more state agencies in more populated states are doing things like this which is quite nice.
