DATCP Web Mapping Applications

- Atrazine Prohibition Areas
Atrazine is an herbicide used to control weeds in corn fields and other agricultural sites. Because it can enter Wisconsin’s groundwater, atrazine use is prohibited in areas of the state where groundwater contamination has been documented through well testing efforts. Landowners, farmers and pesticide applicators use this site to determine where atrazine use is prohibited.
- Farmland Preservation in Wisconsin
Counties are required to adopt a farmland preservation plan to ensure landowner access to farmland preservation program (FPP) benefits. The plan must map areas where the county plans to preserve farmland for agriculture and agricultural related uses. Within these farmland preservation areas, local communities may voluntarily pursue designation of an agricultural enterprise area (AEA) by submitting a petition to DATCP. Within an established AEA, the community can encourage continued agricultural land use and investment in the agricultural economy. Farmers within AEAs are also eligible to enter into voluntary agreements to collect FPP tax credits. Landowners use this site to determine if their property lies within a farmland preservation plan area or an AEA, and to obtain additional information about FPP benefits.
- WI Gypsy Moth ‘Slow the Spread’ Treatment Sites
Gypsy moths are invasive, leaf-eating insects. DATCP conducts its annual Slow the Spread (STS) aerial spraying on gypsy moth populations to slow the spread and establishment of this insect pest in Wisconsin. This site shows approximate boundaries of 2013 STS treatment sites in Wisconsin, as well as approximate boundaries of the separate Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Gypsy Moth Suppression Program. Citizens use this site to determine if spraying will occur over or near their property.
- Livestock Siting
Local governments adopt zoning or licensing ordinances that require a “siting” permit to expand or build a new livestock facility. Citizens and businesses use this site to determine if their property lies within a city, village, town, or county with a siting ordinance, access general information about permit requirements, and find links to related contacts and websites.
Wisconsin Farm to School
Part of DATCP's Local and Regional Foods program, Farm to School increases economic opportunities for Wisconsin producers. The program brings nutritional information as well as local foods to participating school districts. Success comes through strong partnerships with state agencies and the federal AmeriCorps program.
- Specialty Meats Made in Wisconsin
The Specialty Meat Development Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to growing specialty meat businesses in Wisconsin. Citizens and businesses, such as food markets and restaurants, use this site to identify specialty meat processors and producers in Wisconsin. Users can search by county, product type or specific product. Establishments that process wild game, have a specific certification (e.g., organic), or participate in the Something Special from Wisconsin™ program are also identified.
- Wisconsin 590 Nutrient Management Restrictions
Farmers, crop consultants, and government agencies use this site to identify nutrient application restrictions for the Wisconsin NRCS 590 Nutrient Management Practice Standard and create field-level maps for nutrient management plans. DATCP collaborates with soil and nutrient management specialists from the University of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Natural Resources Conservation Service to create and maintain this site.
- Well Constructor's Reports
DATCP created this site to simplify access to historic (pre-1990) well constructor’s reports obtained from the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. Government agencies, well drillers, consultants, realtors, and citizens use this site to search for wells in a specific geographic area, and then access a PDF version of the construction report.
- Wisconsin Drainage Districts
Approximately one-third of Wisconsin farms depend on constructed drains to remove excess water from their land, and about 10% of these drains are organized as drainage districts governed by county drainage boards. Properties in a drainage district are assessed a local fee for maintenance of the drainage system. Landowners use this site to determine if their property lies within a drainage district to determine if they are correctly being assessed this fee and to identify local drainage board members to contact with questions or concerns.
