This data is provided by the Real Property team in the Land Acquisition and Planning
Unit of Department of Natural Resources. Our report is updated annually and tracks the state lands
purchased by the Department of Natural Resources. Figures are based on
actual settlement documents as they are recorded in each county. Each
county is different and it may take many weeks to several months for
DNR’s land purchases to actually be recorded in the official county
records. The Annual Department of Natural Resources Acreage Report only reflects department owned land. For an
overview of all the other land protections programs in the state, refer
to the Maryland Protected Lands Reporting Site below.
Launched in October 2006, this exciting tool uses the best
available data from a variety of federal, state and local partners to
track and report the number of acres permanently protected from the
threat of development in Maryland's landscape. This data is updated more
frequently, each program references how their calculations are based.
Some programs are updated quarterly. http://dnrweb.dnr.state.md.us/gis/plreports/
