Mapping the Moraine
It has been a long-standing objective of STORM and the Moraine Watch program, to use geographical information systems to create user-friendly maps capable of accurately depicting the heterogeneity of the ORM and the types of development that exist on and through it.
Below you will find a series of thematic maps that collect and provide information and tools to help inform questions and concerns regrading land-use and resource management on the Oak Ridge Moraine.
This is the home mapping tool designed to assist the Moraine Watch program. The intention of this map is to provide many interactive resources to concerned citizens who are concerned with land use changes occurring atop the Oak Ridges Moraine.
