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 simultaneous users.
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

Map for the Tasmanian Land Conservancy
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.
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.

When the Town of Little Compton needed a map to describe basic GIS information to its residents, LynxGeos designed the interactive town map published on the town website. Like many counties and states, much of the public GIS iinformation is available, yet requires technical expertise to view in a software program. LynxGeos specializes in creating quick yet powerful easy-to-use interfaces to allow full querying of complex data.
LynxGeos can create custom, easy-to-use yet extremely powerful maps to enable efficient information services. The Lynx Parcel map for Archuleta County has been exceptionally popular, with over 40 clients. It is much quicker, more conveinient, and has additional features than the county map. The custom branding allows realtors to quickly create PDF’s of properties in Archuleta County.
