Legislative District Maps
- To better inform Maryland's state delegates and senators about the land use issues in their district as well as to provide them with a useful reference map to use during discussions with constituents, the ESRGC has completed a project to create a large format map of land use for each 2012 state legislative district in Maryland. These maps were given as gifts to the senators and delegates in February 2012, with the compliments of Salisbury University, the MidShore Regional Council, and the Tri-County Council of the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Tax Ditches and PDAs (Public Drainage Associations
- In the Summer and Fall of 2004 the ESRGC assisted the Maryland Department of Agriculture in digitizing and annotating tax ditches and public drainage associations in selected areas on the Lower Eastern Shore. Tax ditches from the Pocomoke, Nanticoke and Coastal Bays watersheds are available for free download as are PDAs from the Pocomoke and Coastal Bays watersheds.
John Smith Project - Vienna, MD
- As the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the Jamestown Colony nears in 2007, interest in the colonization and the resulting exploration of the Chesapeake Bay is rising. John Smith’s exploration of the Bay and its tributaries in 1608-09 continues to be amazing accomplishment, particularly in terms of its breadth, its completeness, and its accuracy. Indeed, the resulting map of Smith’s travels around the Chesapeake Bay, published in 1612, was used as a reference for the next 150 years.
