I work on many GIS/conservation planning projects for the Eastern Division of the Nature Conservancy. One of the major datasets that we create as a division is the Secured Lands Data Set. The Secured Lands dataset is a GIS database of permanently protected lands in the Northeast United States. The Secured Lands data set is a cooperative project led by The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Eastern Division office, involving all the Conservancy’s eastern state offices and relying on data from 14 state agencies and many private organizations. TNC began building this dataset in 2005 and are now the fourth yearly revision (2008 version). In scope it includes all public and private lands that are permanently secured against conversion to development. The land may be owned in fee or held with an easement but the protection must be permanent. Our geographic area includes Maine , New Hampshire , Vermont , Massachusetts , Rhode Island , Connecticut , New York , Pennsylvania , New Jersey , Delaware , Maryland , Virginia , West Virginia , District of Columbia and Ohio . In 2009, We will expand the geographic scope to cover five new states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama
