This report covers the findings from an evaluation of a prototype map retrieval system developed for the Adirondack Park Agency. The report reviews data needs and data availability to inform a data development strategy for the future. It also presents an analysis of the costs and benefits which can be expected from implementation of a full system to support APA operations. Finally, the report discusses the potential improvements in internal operations, intergovernmental relations, and innovative initiatives that could be supported by an integrated information system. Recommendations for a future system development strategy are included.
