Welcome to LandScope Indiana

The LandScope America website is a work in progress. In addition to comprehensive nationwide information, like much of what you can already find via the map viewer, we will include extensive state-by-state information, found on state home pages like this one. Because Indiana is one of many states where we are still working to develop all of the needed maps, stories and other content, currently you’ll find only summary information here. For an example of completed state content, visit the home pages of our five pilot states: Colorado, Florida, Maine, Virginia and Washington
