Geosystems has created an interactive online map for Environment
Tasmania and the Wilderness Society showing their HCV (high
conservation value) areas: http://www.lynxgeos.com/HCVmap/
Note how this map shows “Polygons with Holes”, not a trivial feat.

From the Wilderness Society:
John Middendorf has exceptional skills at developing online maps as
well as excellent ideas about how to make the most of this technology.
The High Conservation Value Forest online interactive map John created
for the Wilderness Society has proved invaluable for allowing the
public to easily access and understand a large amount of complex data,
something that normally requires specialist skills and software. John’s
professionalism is evident in the presentation and elegant interface of
his work, and the attention to detail and accuracy. Furthermore, John
is efficient, reliable and a pleasure to work with.

Note: the Coupe data is for 2010-2012 and is slightly different for
each map above. One data set came from the Wilderness Society, and the
other from Environment Tasmania. Both were derived using different
methods from the Forestry Tasmania website.
This map was created as a tool for the Tasmanian Land Conservancy to
be able to quickly look up parcels in Tasmania. Using proprietary
Lynx database algorithms and optimization, it is by far the fastest
parcel search engine available, searching over 380,000 parcels in a few
milliseconds. Compare this with Tasmania’s official parcel map, The List, which takes a second or two to retrieve each search request.
This map was created for Still Wild Still Threatened, and the Huon Environmental Group for a 24-hour protest they organised.

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy “revolves” properties, and required
an interactive map that showed the complete details of each property,
along with a map that shows the property boundaries and the properties
relationship to surrounding conservation land. LynxGeos was
chosen to implement their online “Map Search”.
LynxGeos created an “Admin” site
for this solution, which allows the Tasmanian Land Conservancy to
add/edit/delete properties that appear on the map. All data, as
well as the map itself, is stored in the “Cloud”, so the map will
respond quickly to all web requests, whether it has 100 or 100,000
Daniel at the TLC provided us with a glowing report:
Hi John – I’d like to thank you for your great work for our Revolving Fund, done in a timely fashion and at a good price.
Your interactive property map has helped us share information of
our properties in an elegant and easy to use way. It is simple to use,
yet displays a lot of complex information, including our properties
boundaries, in a speedy way. Best of all, it is a complete
standalone component of our website, and does not require any
maintenance or work by our IT department, yet I can add, edit, and
remove properties quickly using our custom admin interface.
Thanks so much for your help and all the best for your company.
Regards – Daniel

The challenge provided by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy was to
create an easy-to-update mapping system for an ever-changing selection
of properties. The map is dynamically generated based on the
contents of a “data folder”, consisting of spatial files (in Shapefile
format), images, and text, so the map can be easily updated by the
client simply by dropping new GIS Shapefile data files into the folder.
Lynx Geosystems has created many popular iPhone and Android Apps:
CalQuakes–an earthquake mapping application for California (over 20,000 downloads)
RockNRoad AZ–maps and information for all the climbing areas in Arizona
Dreamtime–Australia Aborigine Art
Another popular Open Source tool from Lynx Geos for use with Google Maps.
This tool will process complex shapefiles, and display polygons with holes, if there is an interior polygon.
