GPS Lake Bathymetry Maps Invasive Vegetation Growth Areas

GPS Lake Mapping Saves Time and Money by Accurately Locating Problem Areas

It is critical to know the exact acreage and depth range of your lake to make sound management decisions in the battle against invasive aquatic vegetation.  Understanding exactly where to apply treatment not only saves time and money but more importantly provides a better opportunity to control aggressive, non-native  aquatic plant life.  Precision GPS lake mapping conducted by The Mapping Network utilizes highly accurate procedures and equipment for data collection.  Utilizing sub-foot accurate GPS units and hydro-acoustic depth-sounding equipment, our team logs data points for extremely accurate location mapping.  Hydro-acoustic depth sounding equipment measures depth with unparalleled accuracy.  Our clients are able to accurately isolate zones where invasive vegetation is likely to occur or is currently growing.  Proper management decisions provided by local lake management professionals will assist in controlling or elevation unwanted aquatic vegetation.

A GPS Bathymetric Lake Map and Depth Isolation Survey by The Mapping Network will help optimize your efforts to control invasive aquatic vegetation in your lake or pond.  Please contact us for more information on how this service can assist you in managing your aquatic resource.

Tax Incentive for Conservation: By Chris Bober

Posted By Chris Bober on January 17, 2011

Last month something amazing happened in Congress. I realize this is not something you have heard lately around the water cooler, but something truly remarkable happened that will make land conservation financially worthwhile for all, and will hopefully become a more permanent fixture in tax provisions in the future.

H.R. 4853 was passed December 17th by congress, which extends enhanced easement incentives for landowners who donate part or all of the value of a conservation easement for conservation purposes. The tax incentive was extended and is retroactive to January 2010 and good through the end of 2011.

  • Raises the income tax deduction a landowner can take from 30% of their adjusted gross income to 50%
  • Allows farmers and ranchers to deduct up to 100% of their adjusted gross income if 50% or more of that income comes from farming, ranching, or forestry.
  • Increases the time span over which a donor can take deductions from 6 to 16 years.

Conservation Tax Incentives

I feel a meaningful conversation should be shared by my group of professionals and to those of yours who farm, ranch, hunt, and fish, amidst our most precious resource we have, our land. Conserving land can now be equally rewarding from a conservation standpoint, as well as from a financial vantage point. Conserving the land around us is not just for those who have millions of dollars to buy and conserve land to reap tax benefits, but it is for those who work endlessly on their family owned farms and ranches to keep the land safe from development, thanks to recent legislation. Small farm owners now have the opportunity to remain on their land AND preserve it for the future.

A major shift has taken place in Congress, a realization that conservation should be rewarded. For this, we should thank the Land Trust Alliance for all of their hard work in this fight and providing a voice for conservation and land owners. We should also commend those in the Congress who voted for this extension and listened to conservational organizations and agricultural communities around the nation who voiced their concerns about conservation efforts, demanded equality among tax incentives, and developed the idea that permanent conservation efforts need to be rewarded to those who work day in and day out, on the land, with the land, and for the land.

Please pass this information along, support the land trust alliance, and give thanks to those who voted for this change. Our efforts today will make experiencing the outdoors tomorrow and forever, sustainable.

Virtual Fly Over on YouTube to Promote Recreational Real Estate Sales

Mike Lashley (Lashley Land & Recreational Brokers) utilizes every cutting edge technology to market his Nebraska recreational properties for sale.  Since a large number of buyers come from out of state or even hundreds of miles away in-state, it is critical to help potential buyers gain a feel for the land from their home or office before spending time and money to visit properties.  Mike Lashley has teamed up with The Mapping Network for all GPS and GIS mapping products to generate interest for his listings.  Using YouTube to show virtual flyovers of properties gives Mr. Lashley a significant competitive advantage in the recreational land market.

Nebraska Hunting Land For Sale This Is One Amazing Piece of Nebraska Real Estate. 3/4 Mile of Niobrara River Frontage and Over 1 Mile of Lucky Creek Running Through the Ranch.

You will have to look long and hard to find a ranch like this one.  Niobrara River frontage, live creek water, secluded alfalfa fields and tremendous rugged canyon land that is 80% tree covered.  There are White-tailed Deer, Mule Deer, Merriams Wild Turkey all in abundance.

The ranch borders the Thomas Creek Wildlife Management Area.  This is over 1,000 acres of Public Land that is walk-in only hunting.  This makes it extremely hard for the Public to get to the back side.  It’s like having an extra 1,000 + acres to hunt.  What makes this one of the finest deer hunting spots is the 89 acres of alfalfa.  These fields are surrounded by tremendous bedding cover.  It’s a huge food plot that is miles from the nearest road.  I drove my Polaris Ranger within 40 yards of 4 White-tailed Deer.  They rarely see people.  There is a cozy 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with garage and a good metal building included.  The current owner would stay on as a tenant and caretaker.  More road development could be made to improve the ranch.  The current owner has the equipment and know how to do both.
