A Boise State team led by John Freemuth, and funded by a USGS grant, helped create a new tool mapping public lands and other protected areas in the U.S. The Protected Areas Database of the United States contains more than 3 billion public land and marine acres managed by nearly 15,100 agencies and nongovernmental organizations, covering 200,000 separate parks and protected areas.
