Brought to the Web by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Forest Service (USFS), GeoCommunicator acts as a portal to the Geography Network's resources related to land management and land records. Here users can publicize data and events; request information from other users; search for data, references, and events; and sign up to receive updates when new data are posted to a specified geographic area. Visitors can search for data in variety of ways. Clicking the Explorer button brings up a handy search interface, with tabs indicating search types (by township, latitude/ longitude, or a general search with pull-down menus featuring a variety of limits). The favorites tab brings up a page where users can subscribe to receive update notifications. The forum section allows users to communicate with others, and the Land Manager Viewer section features interactive maps that deliver contact information for agencies that manage federal lands. The Reference section showcases NILS (the National Integrated Land System), a database of parcel-based land and survey information. Clearly, a must-bookmark for anyone involved in land management.
