GRN’s Water Trail Illustrative Mapping Program

GRN is proud to announce our new illustrative mapping program for Georgia‘s water trails. In an effort to provide an affordable resource for water trail/ watershed groups in need of illustrative maps for marketing material, kiosks, visitor centers, educational facilities etc. GRN has begun producing Water Trail maps at a fraction of the standard GIS design cost.

Included are both watershed/basin scale and water trail section maps with illustrative detail including identified sites and access points along the trail.

Huge thanks to Jon Devine and Kenny Gilbert of the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission (NEGRC) for making this endeavor a reality through their generous support of this program.

We worked alongside NEGRC to produce the Yellow River Water Trail (watershed & section maps) and Satilla River Water Trail Map and recently rolled out Georgia’s Little River Water Trail’s Illustrative Watershed and Section (1,2,3) Maps as GRN’s first official completed project.
